Wisconsin a Nat’l Winner Kids LiveWell Recipe Challenge Winner from Wisconsin
The National Restaurant Association announced the winners of the second annual Kids LiveWell Recipe Challenge, an initiative showcasing restaurants’ culinary ingenuity for creating healthful menu options for children. Sponsored by founding partner McCormick for Chefs, the Food Away From Home business of McCormick & Company, and Healthy Dining's team of registered dietitians, the Challenge recognizes delicious and nutritious recipes from children’s menus at restaurants and foodservice establishments nationwide. The Kids LiveWell Recipe Challenge involved an “industry tested, kid approved” approach, with a panel of food and nutrition professionals selecting finalists and approximately 30 children choosing the winners at a tasting event at the McCormick World of Flavors store in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor Saturday. Kids chose UW Health as one of the four winning restaurants and foodservice companies.
UW Health’s Swimming Taco (Independent Noncommercial Food Service): One way to get kids to eat fish is to serve it in a whole-wheat corn tortilla, and pair it with diced mango, fresh cabbage and a hint of lime and cilantro. The swimming taco is served with fresh grapes on the side and a frozen banana avocado smoothie. UW Health is comprised of the academic health care entities of the University of Wisconsin-Madison: UW Medical Foundation, UW Hospital and Clinics and UW School of Medicine and Public Health.
