Bannock recipe wins Canada-wide contest for kids

From the article by Priscilla Hwang published by CBC News on November 9, 2017:

Jazmine Uki Akeeagok is just eight years old.

But her homemade bannock recipe was featured on a menu at a gala last month, at the luxurious Fairmont Chateau Laurier hotel in Ottawa.

“It’s chewy, and it’s sort of crunchy,” said Jazmine.

“It looks really good … and it tastes really good.”

Jazmine’s recipe was selected as one of 26 winners from about 300 entries for the 2017 YTV’s Kid Food Nation Recipe Contest. The contest aims to promote healthy eating among youth.

Her bannock was among an impressive roster of healthy recipes made by kids from across Canada, including a kid-friendly sushi-in-a-jar from Quebec, a P.E.I. lobster salad, and a homemade raspberry pie from Yukon.
