First Lady Michelle Obama will host the 2016 Kids’ “State Dinner,” welcoming the 56 winners of this year’s Healthy Lunchtime Challenge.
The aspiring young chefs and a parent or guardian will join the First Lady for a healthy lunch, featuring a selection of the winning recipes, and a performance by Walt Disney World Resort’s The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic!.
Lunch will be followed by a tour of the White House Kitchen Garden.
This is the fifth year of the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge & Kids’ “State Dinner” in which 8 to 12-year-olds across the nation were invited to create a healthy, affordable, original, and delicious lunch recipe.
Entrants were encouraged to reference ChooseMyPlate.gov to ensure recipes met the USDA’s recommended nutrition guidance by representing each of the food groups, either in one dish or as parts of a lunch meal, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and low-fat dairy.
