The winners of the 2015 Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, a nationwide recipe contest for kids ages 8-12 that promotes cooking and healthy eating, includes local girl Julia Rissberger!
The Healthy Lunchtime Challenge received almost 1,000 entries featuring wholesome, tasty ingredients, including salmon, chickpeas, cauliflower, and quinoa. Winners representing all U.S. states, four territories and the District of Columbia will attend a Kids' “State Dinner” at the White House hosted by First Lady Michelle Obama on Friday, July 10.
Julia won with her recipe for Spinach & Apple Salad w/ Cheese Pennies! We asked her about this big honor and she shared, "I am very excited about the trip. I think the First Lady is a very nice woman with good intentions and I am inspired by her!"
Follow the fun on Twitter with #kidsstatedinner and with WSKG as we continue to share updates from Julia & her mom as they travel to D.C.
Congratulations, Julia! We are proud of you!
