Michelle Obama Wants Kid Chefs

Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama is not stopping in her mission to clean up the diets of the American youth. Through her “Let’s Move” initiative, she announced on Monday that there will be a competition for the healthiest kid chefs in the country. “We all want to ensure that our kids are eating nutritious, delicious food at every meal, and as a mom I know that parents are always looking for new ideas to make that happen,” she said. “With parents and kids all across the country getting creative in the kitchen, I know we’ll find healthy meals that every family will enjoy.”

A part of the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, the White House is encouraging kid chefs to submit their original recipes online. Open to children ages 8-12, applicants are being asked to look at MyPlate nutritional guidelines to represent each food group. Winners will be invited to the Kids’ “State Dinner” at the White House in August.
