A “State Dinner” Just for Kids


Calling all kid chefs: here’s your chance to share your favorite delicious and nutritious lunch recipe with First Lady Michelle Obama!

Let’s Move! is teaming up with Epicurious, the Department of Education and USDA for a Healthy Lunchtime Challenge. We’re inviting parents of kids ages 8-12 to submit an original lunch recipe, with the opportunity to be invited to attend a Kids’ “State Dinner” here at the White House in August. We’ll even be serving a selection of the winning healthy recipes.

The rules are simple: All entrants are encouraged to reference the MyPlate nutritional guidelines to ensure recipes meet healthy standards. Entries should represent each of the food groups, either in one dish or as parts of a lunch meal, including fruit, veggies, whole grains, protein and low-fat dairy foods.

You’ve got until June 17, so get cooking and submit your recipe!
