2nd round

Kids Kitchen Club Challenge 2024

Sustainable Nutrition  

NNEdPro in its mission to bring nutrition to children, is working towards creating awareness among kids aged 4-15 about the food they consume and its importance. NNEdPro has chosen to focus on "Sustainable Nutrition" for this year, building on the success of previous years, and welcomes all 4 to 15-year-olds to take part in this creative art challenge by submitting a piece of work based on the appropriate subtopics for their age group. We encourage all primary and secondary schools to utilise the downloadable interactive worksheet curated by us to conduct the competition in their own institutions. As this year marks the 15th Anniversary of NNEdPro, the participants will be incorporating their ideas into the number 15 template provided as part of the worksheet, which also contains a crossword puzzle in order to familiarise themselves with some of the key sustainable nutrition terms. We hope to see a lot of enthusiastic children taking their first step towards learning about sustainable nutrition.  

Competition timeline

  • Submission Deadline – 15th March 2024 

  • Judging Panel – 22nd March 2024

  • Winners Announcement – 30th March 2024

 

INSTRUCTIONS

For this year we have divided the children into 3 age groups for participation. Each age group has a separate topic and some guiding questions to get them thinking about the various subtopics that they could potentially explore in their artwork. There is a downloadable worksheet that contains the number 15 template on one side and an interactive crossword puzzle based on some sustainable nutrition terms on the other side. Apart from this, there is an information sheet for the teachers/parents/caregivers in order to better equip them in initiating this particular competition and further facilitate continuous nutritional education for children.

  • Distribute a printed sheet of recycled paper with the number 15 

  • Kids will be asked to draw their favourite and healthy foods inside the number 15
