It was an amazing and unforgettable experience at the Kid Food Nation Gala that took place on Sunday October 22, 2017 at the Fairmont Château Laurier in Ottawa. The Government of Canada, Boys and Girls Club of Canada, President's Choice Children's Charity, Corus Entertainment celebrated the winners of the Kid Food Nation Contest along with their families. Kids from across Canada submitted their homemade healthy recipes. Thousands of entries were received and only 26 winners were chosen to attend the Gala and a trip to Ottawa as the grand prize.

Prior to the Gala, the kids did an individual photoshoot session. They are all so adorable in their nicely dressed attire.

Brandon was excited to tell point to me that his Cheesy Quesadilla was one of the featured recipe for the appetizers on the table.

Was great meeting Owen Charters (President & CEO of Boys and Girls Club of Canada) and Ginette Petitpas Taylor (Minister of Health, MP for Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe).

The event was hosted by Carlos Bustamante (of YTV's The Zone and reporter for ET Canada). And yes, the kids were thrilled to meet their favourite YTV celebrity. He was very good with the kids and also signed autographs for them.

This is a wonderful inspiration to all the kids knowing that they can achieve their goals, learn about healthy eating and also have the chance to inspire others as well.

Congratulations again to all the winners!
