Kid Food Nation Commercial Behind-the-Scenes

We have just wrapped up the filming yesterday afternoon (March 8th, 2018) with Corus Entertainment Inc. on the Kid Food Nation commercial for Global TV. As a Kid Food Nation winner for the first season, our son Brandon, along with another fellow BC winner named Oliver, were invited to film a commercial to spread the word to other kids (and their parents) about healthy eating and to submit their own original recipe at kidfoodnation.com.

Visit Brandon's blog at "Brandon's Adventures" on his thoughts about
his KFN commercial filming experience.

I think the kids interacting with each other and preparing their recipes together were so adorable.  Brandon's winning recipe was the "Cheesy Quesadilla". Oliver's winning recipe was the "Salmon with Roasted Vegetables".

Final edits will be aired near the end of March. Be sure to keep an eye out during the morning news as well as the evening news on Global TV. Special thanks to the following professionals for making this happen: Cherene Dyer-Kambeitz (Senior Writer, Producer and Director)

Kids, submit your recipe and enter for a chance to win a trip to Ottawa to attend an amazing gala!
