What's it all about?

The Aetna Healthy Food FightSM contest was started in 2010 with the goal of encouraging people to live healthier lives through healthy cooking. One of the ways we try to spread healthy eating habits is with our Aetna Healthy Food Fight contest, held every year. This year people from all over the country competed in regional cook-offs, and the winners from each region traveled to New York City to face off in a final cook-off, complete with knowledgeable judges and big prizes.

In 2011, we teamed up with celebrity chef Bobby Flay to help spread the word about healthy eating. He was a judge at our final cook-off, and he's also featured on this site, sharing 10-second Healthy Cooking Tips and more. He's just one of our many supporters, including American Airlines, Circulon® cookware, The Culinary Institute of America, Hyatt Hotels and Resorts and Recipe.com.
