The National Restaurant Association and McCormick For Chefs will hold the inaugural Kids Recipe Challenge April 27, beginning at 10 a.m. at McCormick World of Flavors at Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Approximately 30 kid judges will taste test recipes submitted by restaurants nationwide and select a winner in four categories:

  • Independent restaurant or company with fewer than 20 units
  • Multi-unit company with more than 20 units
  • Contract Managed Food Service
  • Independent Noncommercial Food Service

The Kids Recipe Challenge is a new initiative aimed at showcasing restaurants' culinary ingenuity of creating healthful menu options for children. The contest recognizes delicious and nutritious recipes from children's menus at restaurants and foodservice establishments nationwide.
Restaurant and foodservice operators submitted children's recipes that meet the nutrition guidelines from the National Restaurant Association's award-winning Kids LiveWell program. RSVP to Rachel Salabes at
