Local Highlights

Food and nutrition exhibits involve fun and engaging food science and nutrition experiments such as planning a recipe, purchasing/comparing cost analysis, examing food characteristics, serving tasty and nutritious meals as well as discovering interaction of various food ingredients in a recipe. However, exhibits should be prepared with food safety in mind. Using unsafe ingredients or recipes could cause judges who evaluate exhibits to become ill.  A NEW publication offers guidelines to help 4-H youth select an acceptable product for an exhibit, find an approved recipe source, and identify the appropriate preparation method.
