Yum Pediatrics Veggie Coloring Contest


Yum Pediatrics, the office of Dr. Nimali Fernando, and the entire Yum Pediatrics team are always trying to come up with ways to inspire kids to eat nutritious foods. That’s why we are pleased to announce our first ever Veggie Art Contest. Throughout the entire month of March you can submit your children’s artwork to a Yum Pediatrics panel of judges for display and a grand prize.

The topic is “What is your favorite Vegetable?”

Kids of all ages can submit artwork highlighting their favorite vegetable. The artwork can depict them eating the vegetable, growing it, or any other theme involving the vegetable.

Kids will be judged by the following age categories:

1) 4 years and under
2) 5-7 years
3) 8 years and older

We will be judging on creativity and artistic use of materials. A variety media (paint, pencil, crayon, marker, mixed, etc.) will be accepted.

Kids can submit works size 8.5 x 11 inches to 16 x 24 inches

Artwork can be submitted by March 31st in person or by mail to:
Yum Pediatrics
10482 Georgetown Drive
Suite B
Spotsylvania, VA 22553
