chef2011.jpg The 4-H Healthy Lifestyles Challenge is modeled after such competitions as the Food Network’s “Iron Chef,” challenges teams of 4-H members to create a dish they are assigned. Team members must prepare the dish, make a presentation about it to the judges, interpret a label, plan a menu utilizing the dish and prepare a fitness plan. The presentation will include information about the serving size, nutritional value, how to utilize the dish in a meal and the cost of the dish. The 4-H Healthy Lifestyles Challenge allows 4-H members to demonstrate their culinary and food safety skills to judges and observers.

Age divisions are determined by a participant’s grade:

  • Junior Division (Cloverleafs):Grades 4-5
  • Junior Division: Grades 6-8
  • Senior Division: Grades 9 and up
