First Lady Michelle Obama is again teaming up with Epicurious, the U.S. Department of Education, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to host a nationwide recipe challenge to promote cooking and healthy eating among America’s youth.  Teaching kids to cook is a great way to ensure our children learn healthy habits early in life.  The third annual Healthy Lunchtime Challenge & Kids' “State Dinner” encourages kids across the country to come up with healthy, original creations.

Parents or guardians and their children, ages 8-12, are invited to create and submit an original lunch recipe that is healthy, affordable, and tasty.  Each recipe must also adhere to the guidance that supports USDA’s MyPlate (at ChooseMyPlate.gov) to ensure that the criteria of a healthy meal are met.  Entries must represent each of the food groups, either in one dish or as parts of a lunch meal, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and low-fat dairy foods, with fruits and veggies making up roughly half of the plate or recipe.

One winner will be chosen from each state to fly via Delta Airlines this summer, to the White House where they will attend a ‘State Dinner’ featuring each wining recipe.
