Sodexo is presenting its sixth annual Future Chefs Challenge March 16 in the Wauwatosa West High School cafeteria, according to a news release.

Elementary students in Wauwatosa will 'learn about the importance of healthy eating while honing their culinary skills,' the release states.

Students will arrive at the high school, 11400 W. Center Street, at 4 p.m. to check in and begin preparation 15 minutes later.

This year, the students submitted recipes for a healthy breakfast, compared to healthy after school snack recipes in 2015 and healthy sandwiches in 2014. The food will be judged according to originality, taste, ease of preparation, kid friendliness, and use of healthy ingredients.

Six finalists were selected to participate in the district-wide challenge. The finalists are Carter Hubbard-Fleischer from Eisenhower, Sydney Cozzens from Jefferson, Mia Kurth from Jefferson, Maddie Dee of McKinley, Mateo Canales from Roosevelt, and Isabella Jackson of Wilson.

Winning students from each participating district will be considered for the regional finalist awards. Five selected regional finalists go on to compete for the public vote on the Future Chefs YouTube channel.

Family, friends and teachers of the finalists are welcome to come and share their support, organizers said.
