WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama is working again with Epicurious and the departments of Education and Agriculture on a third nationwide recipe contest to promote healthy eating among kids.
The third Healthy Lunchtime Challenge ends in the summer with a kids' "state dinner" at the White House. Some of the winning recipes will be served.
Eight- to 12-year-olds from all 50 states and six U.S. territories are invited to submit an original recipe for a healthy, affordable and tasty lunch. Recipes must follow Agriculture Department guidelines for a healthful meal and fruits and vegetables must make up about half of the plate or recipe.
Recipes can be submitted through April 5.
