Future Chefs and Nutrition Conscious Kids Invited to Enter 'The Healthy Lunchtime Challenge'

It’s time once again for The Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, from First Lady Michelle Obama, WGBH Boston, the U.S. Department of Education, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture! Kids aged 8-12 are invited to submit a healthy MyPlate-inspired recipe (with their parents’ supervision) for a chance to win a trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the Kids’ State Dinner at the White House. This contest closes April 4th; the announcement of two local winners from each U.S. state and territory will be held in June; and the Kids’ State Dinner event will be held in July. https://youtu.be/c_4vS3xhDEI
