First Lady Invites Recipe Winners to White House

Michelle Obama plans to host Healthy Lunchtime Challenge winners in the nation’s capital next month.

Michelle Obama has just announced the winners for the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge. The challenge was set to find the healthiest and most inventive lunches created by eight to 12-year-old children and their parents from across the country and US territories. Some of the veg lunches among the 54 winners include: nine-year-old Alexea Wagner’s Vegan Sloppy Joes and Kale Salad, 10-year-old Samuel Hightower’s Sizzling Tofu with Green Onions and Sugar Snap Peas, and 11-year-old Haile Thomas’ Quinoa, Black Bean, and Corn Salad. While not all of the 54 dishes selected were vegan or vegetarian, there was a large number of meat- and dairy-free meals in the winning list. The victors will join the first lady in Washington, DC on August 20th for a tour of the White House’s vegetable garden and a “Kids’ State Dinner” featuring the winning recipes.
