For the second Kids' State Dinner to be held in the summer of 2013, Michelle Obama and others invite American schoolchildren to submit healthy recipes to be served at the dinner.
Calling all kids who like to stir things up in the kitchen....
Building off the success of the inaugural Healthy Lunchtime Challenge & Kids' State Dinner in 2012, Michelle Obama is teaming up with Epicurious, the US Department of Education, and the Department of Agriculture to host a nationwide recipe challenge to promote healthy eating among America’s youth.
“Last year’s Kids State dinner was one of my favorite events we’ve ever done for 'Let’s Move!' because it perfectly captured how young people, parents, community leaders and businesses can come together for innovative, healthy solutions,” said Ms. Obama. “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.”
