For the next five weeks, four parents will put their best healthy recipes up for judgement against Christine Cushing’s own creations. Each week, both sides will be assigned a theme and challenged to come up with their best recipe using our list of 12 healthy ingredients. The healthier the result, the better -- and each week, you get to add their recipes to your personal collection! This page will be updated weekly with each successive challenge, so get ready to sample The Main Ingredients!
