Competition Rules




Army Eats 2021

The Army has released a series of Healthy Soldier Cookbooks which aims to encourage Service Personnel and the wider service community to eat healthy and take care of their wellbeing. This competition is an opportunity for regular, reserve, officers and soldiers, to capture their skills and promote the importance of healthy living by submitting an image of their healthy meals. Each winning entry will win a £50 voucher.


A selection of entries will be selected to feature in a future published cookbook with proceeds supporting a military charity.


The rules couldn't be simpler

  1. Don't cheat! Please don't take an image from google or direct from a celebrity chefs website and pass it off as your own. We have some clever software that allows us to look at image metadata. Your entry will be disqualified if you do this.

  2. Read the monthly theme, extra details will be provided by the judging panel and what they will be looking for.

  3. There is no limit on how many times you can enter.

  4. Entries must be submitted in line with the competition calendar and will be judged against the scheduled theme at the time of submission.

How to enter:

  • Entrants must upload one image of their meal

  • Title of your meal

  • Entrants must include their full name

  • Rank

  • Unit

  • Category entered.

  • A short description of what you have cooked including recipe reference (if used)

Judging and Winners

  • Presentation and visual appeal

  • Nutritional balance
