Recipe Contest Offers Chance to Dine at the White House

michelle_obama
First Lady Michelle Obama is challenging the nation's kids to share their favorite nutritious lunch recipes with Let's Move!, an initiative to solve the problem of childhood obesity within one generation.

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.
