This post brought to you by Avocados from Mexico. All opinions are 100% mine.
Do you have an aspiring chef in your household? Is your little one always wanting to help in the kitchen? Well then you might want to check out the Avocados from Mexico Mini Chef Video Contest! (do you hear the jingle when you read this? I do!) Its a fun and easy contest with some awesome prizes!
Avocados have vitamins and nutrients essential for your child’s development and growth. Three slices of avocado, which by the way is a fruit and not a vegetable, packs potassium, fiber, folate, vitamin C, E and those B-complex vitamins that support memory and brain function.
Did you know avocados are considered one of the best first solid foods for infants? I had no idea but one of the first foods we ever gave our daughter was guacamole and from her first taste she was a big fan! Fully ripened avocados can be eaten alone or mashed with fruits such as bananas, mangos and pears, applesauce, yogurt and mashed potatoes for extra taste and texture.
We eat a lot of avocados in our house in guacamole, sliced on sandwiches, in salads and by the slice. Tonight we made chicken quesadillas with diced avocado and guacamole (see my recipe). It was muy delicioso! My son couldn’t decide which he liked better the sliced avocado, the quesadillas or the guacamole!
The video contest is for parents of children ages 5-15. Entering is easy you just need to:
- submit a 1-3 minute video of your child/children preparing an avocado dish
- be sure to have them include why they love avocados
- also include the catchy Avocados from Mexico jingle found on their website (jingle can either be sung by your child or you can play the recording).
Videos will be judged on the Mini Chef’s personality, presence of avocado and why they love avocados.
Have fun and see if you can get your child to act like their favorite chef – are they a Rachel Ray or more of an Emeril?
One grand prize winner gets $1,000 in cash plus an HD Camcorder (for future home videos!), a Nintendo 3D, 2 games and a personalized Mini Chef jacket. Nine runners up win big too with an HD Camcorder, a Nintendo 3D and a personalized Mini Chef jacket.
