TUCSON - We first told you about Kristi's Kid, Haile Thomas, in March 2012. An 11-year-old dynamo, Haile is dedicated to combating childhood obesity.
Haile is founder of the Healthy Girl Adventures Club website, and the lead host of the "Kids Can Cook" online cooking show. Now, Haile has a photo contest going to promote healthy eating.
Anyone can enter and submit an original photo. It must include seasonal fruit and/or vegetables in a creative setting. Photos can be posted at http://www.facebook.com/hgaclub . Click on the Summer Photo Contest link, to submit. You're also encouraged to vote for your favorite photo, on the Facebook page, now through July 27th.
The photographer whose work receives the most votes will be announced Monday, July 30th. The winner will receive a complimentary Deluxe Room (for two) at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch. Also, dinner at the Alto Ristorante e Bar, and a Gondola Ride along the resort's waterway.
Also on Haile's plate- Monday, July 16th- Haile is launching the first-ever, week-long Culinary Camp for Kids. It's at the Children's Museum Tucson (200 S. 6th Avenue.) The camp includes hands-on cooking classes, for easy-to-make meals. Haile will assist Chef Ryan Clark (Executive at Lodge on the Desert) in preparing a healthy breakfast on the 16th.
