Want to have lunch at the White House? Meet Mrs. Obama? Shake hands with the President? Be a guest on a fully-paid trip to Washington DC this summer that includes tours, private parties, and more? I’m thinking you might.
I attended the very first one of these events with my daughter Elena. I thought it was so amazing, I want to spread the word and help you get there too.
The 5th Annual Healthy Lunchtime Challenge is currently underway! Kids 8-12 years old are invited to join a parent or guardian in creating an original MyPlate-inspired recipe that is healthy, creative, affordable and delicious. The recipe should follow MyPlate nutrition guidelines and this year, in celebration of the MyPlate, MyState initiative, it’s encouraged that entries include local ingredients grown in your state, territory, and community.
The chef who created it, along with a parent or guardian, could win a trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the 5th Annual Kids’ “State Dinner” at the White House. Only one recipe from each of the 50 states (plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the 4 U.S. territories) will make the grade, so enter now!
Recipes must be submitted by April 4, 2016!
