The 4th Annual Healthy Lunchtime Challenge

Posted by SDPB on

Can you imagine your recipe being featured in a cookbook? Or representing your home state at a Kids’ “State Dinner” at the White House this summer?

If so, First Lady Michelle Obama, the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and WGBH Boston invite you to enter the 4th annual Healthy Lunchtime Recipe Challenge & Kids’ “State Dinner.”

In order to be eligible, lunch recipe submissions should follow the MyPlate nutrition guidelines: Fruits and vegetables should make up about half of the recipe or dish, and it should also include whole grains, lean protein and low-fat dairy. Submissions must include information about how and why they were created and be:

• Healthy
• Creative
• Affordable
• Delicious
• Original

One recipe from each of the 50 states and territories will be chosen. And, the prize is priceless! As healthy food ambassadors for each state and U.S. territory, the winning chefs and a parent or guardian will be flown to Washington D.C. where they will have the opportunity to attend the Kids’ “State Dinner,” hosted by Mrs. Obama at the White House!

When you have your recipe ready, you’ll need your parent or guardian to fill out the entry form.

Good luck. We can’t wait to see what you all cook up!
