Kids' "State Dinner"

 

The 2015 Kids' "State Dinner"

This year, First Lady Michelle Obama teamed up with PBS flagship station WGBH Boston, the U.S. Department of Education, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to host the fourth-annual Healthy Lunchtime Challenge to promote cooking and healthy eating among young people across the nation. The challenge invited kids ages 8-12 to join a parent or guardian in creating an original recipe that is healthy, affordable, and delicious. One winner from each U.S. state, territory, and the District of Columbia was selected, and they were invited to attend the 2015 Kids’ “State Dinner” here at the White House. The big event took place on July 10, 2015, and the 55 young chefs and a parent or guardian joined the First Lady for a healthy lunch, featuring a selection of the winning recipes, followed by a visit to the White House Kitchen Garden.
