"It's a lot more difficult for kids" to stick to a healthy diet, so 50 Cent said of what he thinks of. Thus, as an attempt to fight childhood obesity the rapper has launched a nationwide cooking contest to help high school kids control obesity by improving their eating habits.
The contest sponsored by Glaceau, the company behind 50's vitamin drink called Formula 50, will award $100,000 in college scholarship to the student chef who creates the most "nutrient-rich" cafeteria lunch recipe.
The competition will include student chefs in cities including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle. As of 50, the singer will serve as a spokes-rapper and judge for the contest.
