Attention young chefs: First Lady Michelle Obama wants your healthiest recipe and submitting one could earn you a trip to the White House.
As part of her Let's Move! challenge, the first lady is sponsoring a nationwide recipe challenge where a winner from each state will be flown to Washington for a Kids' State Dinner. The dinner will feature some of the winning recipes.
"Last year's young chefs impressed and inspired me with their creativity, and I can't wait to welcome a whole new group to the White House this summer and taste their creations," Obama said in a statement. "So kids, let's get cooking!"
The challenge urges kids ages 8-12 to team up with a parent or guardian to create and submit and original lunch recipe that is healthy, affordable and tasty. The meal must follow the Agriculture Department's healthy standards and must include each of the food groups with fruits and veggies making up roughly half the plate.
The contest is co-sponsored by the Department of Education and Epicurious.
