To enter the competition entrants are being asked to submit recipes via Facebook(www.facebook.com/totalgreekyoghurt). All recipes must include TOTAL Greek Yoghurt as an ingredient.
Alison White from TOTAL Greek Yoghurt said; “Every week, we receive a number of emails from customers who have used TOTAL as a healthier substitute for cream, crème fraiche or mayonnaise. The recipes we sometimes receive are of a very high standard and so we thought an eBook would be a great way to showcase people’s passion for the product.
Through the competition, we’re hoping to receive a variety of tasty recipes – from nutritious snacks to wholesome family meals and healthy desserts. The eBook will be available to download on Amazon early 2012 as a Kindle eBook and all profits will be donated to the very worthy charity – Action for Children.”
By entering the competition, people will be in with a chance of seeing their name and recipe credited in the TOTAL Greek Yoghurt published e-cookbook, alongside the recipes of well known personalities!
Action for Children supports and speaks out for the UK’s most vulnerable and neglected children and young people. One of the main signs of child neglect is children going hungry. The effects of hunger can be devastating, from daily pain and poor health to low educational achievement and bullying. Action for Children looks to combat this by early intervention. All of the proceeds from this project will be donated to the ’Take Your Action for Children’ neglect campaign.
