Leading Chicago Attorney Jeffery Leving Joins Celebrity Panel of Judges for Diabetes Cook-off

Family Law Attorney Jeffery M. Leving will judge a healthy cook-off in honor of National Diabetes Awareness Month sponsored by The Southside Diabetes Project.

 
PRLog - Nov. 13, 2012 - CHICAGO -- Family Law Attorney Jeffery M. Leving will judge a healthy cook-off in honor of National Diabetes Awareness Month sponsored by The Southside Diabetes Project. The semi-finals will be airing live on the Jacinda Show on the TLN network from the Washburne Culinary Institute/Kennedy-King College this Saturday, November 17th at 12:00 PM. Admission is open to all.

Amateur chefs are invited to submit recipes in four categories: side dish, entrée, dessert, and snack. While each category has its own specific rules, all submissions must be diabetic-friendly, cost efficient, and above all, appetizing. Leving is most looking forward to the entrée portion.

“The requirements created for each area are what make this challenge so unique. Creating an entrée that is less than 750 calories, no more than eight ingredients, and delicious is not a simple task. These are the meals responsible parents prepare for their children.”

Leving, Chairman for the Illinois Council on Responsible Fatherhood (www.responsiblefatherhood.illinois.gov), believes in the positive impact the presence of a father can have in a child’s life, including the influence on their children’s healthy eating habits. Leving encourages parents to set good examples.

“The involvement of a parent influences the growth of their child, emotionally and physically. In this case, it is important for parents to instill nutritious eating habits with their children to ensure they grow up healthy. Critical studies have shown that parental influence over children’s eating habits outweigh that of their schools and the media”.

The presence of Type II Diabetes in children, formerly known as adult-onset diabetes, has grown substantially within the past two decades. According to the advocacy organization Trust for America’s Health, Illinois ranks 10th highest in the country for overweight or obese children, ages 10-17. Leving, and programs like The Southside Diabetes Project, recognize the need to promote healthy eating habits.

The contestant that Leving chooses will have the chance to walk home with a $500 award or other great prizes.
