Want a chance to win a trip to the White House?
First Lady Michelle Obama, the U.S. Department of Education, and Epicurious invite you to send in your favorite recipe for a healthy lunch.
If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child aged 8 to 12, we invite you to work together to create a healthy and delicious lunch. You could win a trip to Washington, D.C., and have the chance to attend a Kids' "State Dinner" hosted by the White House, where some of the winning recipes will be served. (The "State Dinner" will be attended by one child/parent team selected from each of the 50 states, plus D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Territories.)
Each of the food groups should be represented in your recipe: fruit, vegetables, whole grains, protein, and dairy. You can either combine them into one recipe, or include some of them in the recipe and suggest others as accompaniments to form an entire lunch meal. Your recipe should also be original, affordable, and delicious!
