Tips & Tricks from Chopped Junior’s Youngest Winner!
Studies show that access to healthy, nutritious food has a positive impact on children and helps set them up for successful and healthy futures. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Claire Hollingworth, the 12-year-old champion of Food Networks’ Chopped Junior! Claire is here to provide families with easy tips and recipe solutions that not only taste great, but also help to instill the importance of nourishing growing bodies and minds with real, wholesome foods.
"My dream is to bring people together through food by empowering them to cook. By teaching families and children about healthy food, we are one step closer to solving the problem of food equity. I love Revolution Foods because they're working to promote community wellness through nutrition education and access, and I am honored to help them encourage parents and kids to get in the kitchen and whip up something delicious together!"
– Chef Claire
Together with the Revolution Foods team, Claire has developed three easy and healthful recipes, which can be practiced and enjoyed by children of all ages. Download our printable flyers and get cooking!
- Supernova Cauliflower Hummus – This crowd-pleasing dip is perfect for picky eaters. A twist on the classic hummus dip, this version swaps out garbanzo for cannellini beans and cauliflower, which is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Top off the dip with kid-friendly seasonings, including paprika, garlic, and lemon juice, which can be a great way to get kids to try new foods.
- Bite-Sized Fiesta Bowls - Instead of ordering take out to satisfy Mexican food cravings, opt for this better-for-you take on the traditional taco. It’s easy to mix and match ingredients so each member of the family can create something unique that they love. Plus, the array of different flavors and ingredients in this savory dish doesn’t just make your plate more visually appealing; the more colorful the plate, the more vitamins and minerals in the meal.
- Bionic No-Bake Oat Cake - You only need five ingredients to create these filling, tasty treats. Experiment with this recipe by using peanut butter or allergy-friendly sunflower seed butter as the base instead of bananas, or give it a unique twist by opting for chopped almonds or cashews as an alternative to chocolate. Added bonus – these no-bake healthy treats don’t require any heat sources or sharp tools to create, making it simple and safe for the entire family.
