The competition, launched last

''It's a chance for both boys and
girls to get into the kitchen and

''They've seen the programme on
TV and it's given them lots of

responsible for their child-

''Children are technically
savvy but parents have got
wisdom. Join the two together and
we have won.''
He encouraged parents to be
friends with their children on
