Alabama's Winning Recipe: Green Chicken Wrap and Fruit-tacular Salad

“I love cooking and I love my vegetables. Avocado and spinach are two of my favorites and they are also good for your body. I have been making this recipe for a while but made it a bit more green. Some of the veggies and fruits were purchased at my local farmers market, along with the honey. I am the daughter of an Air Force member and Air Force veteran. Cooking is one of my many passions.”

- Lael Jefferson, Age 11, the 2016 Healthy Lunchtime Challenge winner from Alabama
