Healthy Lunchtime Challenge - Submit Your Recipe

Posted:

The First Lady wants your health recipe.  Michelle Obama has launched the third "healthy lunchtime challenge" promoting health eating among children.

Eight to 12 year olds from all 50 states and six U.S. territories are invited to submit an original lunch recipe that's healthy, affordable and tasty.

They must follow the agriculture department guidelines for a healthy meal. And fruits and veggies must make up half of the plate or recipe.

Winning recipes will be served at a kids' state dinner at the white house this summer.

Recipes can be submitted through April 5.

Contest rules and information can be found online at
