Fifty-four young chefs, whose recipes were selected as winners of Epicurious' Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, visited the White House today for the second annual Kids' State Dinner, hosted by First Lady Michelle Obama in the State Dining Room.

When they arrived, White House chefs were busy in the kitchen whipping up some of the winning recipes. After hearing the First Lady speak, President Obama surprised everyone by stopping by to say hello. Singer Rachel Crow also made an appearance – some of the kids even got on stage to dance with her!

Their visit was so much fun, we had to compile some of our favorite moments. Check them out below.
