Junior Compassionate Cook is our annual cookery video contest for six to 12-year-olds and is a fun way of making the connection between good welfare and good food.

All each child has to do is film themselves making their yummiest recipe using RSPCA Assured ingredients.

Entries are open from Monday 5 September and close on Monday 14 November 2016.


The rules

To qualify you must:

  • be aged between six and 12
  • supervised by an adult
  • show you're using RSPCA Assured ingredients
  • make a video that doesn't exceed 5 minutes or 500mb
  • have your parent or guardian’s permission
  • adhere to full terms and conditions.

This year’s competition is in association with Co-op and Primary Times.
