First Look: Delicious Recipes from the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge

2012 Edition

On Monday August 20, 2012 First Lady Michelle Obama will welcome 54 talented young chefs to the White House for the first-ever Kids State Dinner. The guests -- ages 8-12 -- are all winners of the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, and each of them created an original recipe that is healthy, original and affordable, and contains the five food groups (fruits, veggies, protein, low-fat dairy, and whole grains). 

The recipes have been gathered into a digital cookbook, which will be published by Epicurious and available as a free download starting this week. But we're previewing a few of them here -- just click the links below and get cooking!
