Students learn healthy cooking with SWAT cook-off

Posted: Updated:

Pork tenderloin, squash and pears. Those were the three ingredients high school participants had to include in Sunday's SWAT Cook-off. 

The cook-off took place at the Indiana Career and Technical Center. Seven high school SWAT teams, which stands for Student Wellness Awareness Team, went to work to impress the judges.
"They have to figure out how to use the nutritional ingredients for it and they have to figure out a recipe. They can either write it or find it and, most importantly, it has to be a healthy choice," said Rhonda Meade with Welborn Baptist Foundation.

The teams were graded on presentation, taste, and most importantly, over-all nutritional value.

"One of our biggest marks was we were high on sodium, so instead of using regular salt, we used light salt this year which really helped out a lot," said Kennedy Madison, a junior at Bosse High School.

It was the third year for the event.
