Healthy 5, the unique educational project of Albert Foundation, announces the nationwide popular children’s cooking show Coolinaření se Zdravou 5. This year’s competition is enriched by another dimension – children will prepare healthy meals and suggest with whom and why will they share the snack to please the person. Teams of three children from kindergartens, primary schools, orphanages and other non profit organizations in age from 5 to 15 years, can register. The closure for applications to regional rounds is on 7th April 2017.

“Even this year, the discipline in the competition is to prepare a healthy snack. Every year we bring the innovations to the competition, so this year we would like to bring the kids to understanding that food should be prepared with love and then happily enjoyed when dined. The combination of social and nutritive topics is logical connection of key activities of Albert Foundation, which has been involved in promoting healthy lifestyle for children and their parents and support of education, integration and development of children from socially disadvantaged environment,” explains news in project Eva Nepokojová, the coordinator of Healthy 5.

The professional jury will evaluate not only the composition of the meal, but also the attractive appearance and the idea, how the teams deal with the competitively prepared meal. The value of meal for four persons should be around 100 crowns. The purchase of ingredients in this value is reimbursed to schools by Albert purchase vouchers.
