The Pacific Community launches the Pacific Healthy Recipe Contest
7:14 pm GMT+12, 06/02/2020, New Caledonia

The Pacific Community (SPC) is calling for contestants to join the Pacific Healthy Recipe Contest and showcase their cooking skills and creativity to promote healthy eating and prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
 
Up to 75 per cent of deaths in Pacific countries are related to NCDs, such as diabetes and heart diseases, with unhealthy diets and lifestyles seen as important factors in their development.
 
From observation, the Pacific diet has changed over time and consumption of local foods has transitioned into consumption of more imported processed foods that are high in sugar, fat and salt. Approaches to improve eating habits includes trainings on healthy eating, development of resources to improve knowledge and health promoting campaigns to increase awareness.
 
Who can apply?

The contest will be open to all Pacific Island Countries and Territories.
 
How to apply
The contest will be launched through SPC social media.
Contestants will be invited to:
- Complete the registration online until 29 February 2020
- Follow the directions given to submit details of their recipe that they have created together with a photo of the prepared dish. 
 
Prize
The winner and their entire family (up to 10 people) will enjoy a gourmet meal prepared in the comfort of their own home by a well-known chef!
All participants will get a copy of the ‘Pasifka Plates’ cook book.
 
How to assess the winner?


Assessment of the winner will be based on:
 
    Use of local ingredients
    Recipe with less sugar, salt and fat
    Creative and aesthetic presentation
    Showcasing of Pacific cooking traditions.
 
The recipes will be made available on the SPC website as well as shared through other means of communication.
