Kid chefs, ages 8-12, and their parents should submit their favorite lunch-time recipe to www.letsmove.gov/kids-state-dinner. Recipes should include each of the food groups, including fruits and vegetables, whole grains, protein and low-fat dairy foods. The deadline to enter the recipe contest is Sunday, June 17.
The winning child from each state and his or her parent or guardian will be invited to attend a Kid's State Dinner at the White House in August. Winning recipes will also be included in an online cookbook.
