Michelle Obama: Kids’ State Dinner

The Barack Obama Family

Who has the best ideas for great healthy lunches for kids?

Chefs?

Kids?

It may turn out to be the latter. Find out tomorrow at 10am when the First Lady hosts 54 kids from around the country at the first ever Kids’ State Dinner.

Tomorrow is going to be a special day at the White House, and I wanted to make sure you got a chance to be a part of it.

Each of these young people worked with their parents to create an original lunch recipe. We asked them to design a dish that was healthy, affordable, and tasty — and which met the nutritional guidelines set up by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. A panel of judges from the groups who partnered with us on this project — the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Education, and Epicurious — chose these 54 recipes as their favorites.

Oddly, it doesn’t sound like there were any kid judges.

Parents and kids can watch the event at home.

Maybe kids at home will get inspired to create more (and better?) lunches. Let’s hope there is a Second Kids’ State Dinner to celebrate.
