Students at Chief Joseph Middle School in Richland whipped up a little healthy competition Wednesday.
Over 20 students competed in making healthy versions of some of our favorite breakfast foods like french toast, pancakes and eggs. It was all a part of the Fuel Up to Play 60 program, which encourages young people to learn about nutrition and making healthy choices.
"It's part of our jobs in the school districts to help them learn about nutrition, be good role models, and do anything we can do to make them be conscious of it," said Richland School District Nutrition Services Director Denise Christensen.
Local chefs judged the meals on taste, texture, and sanitation among other things. Many of the students we spoke to said they plan on becoming chefs when they grow up.
