Now this is FUN!

Over 1,200 healthy lunch recipes created by kids were submitted and judged by a team of White House and celebrity chefs.  One winner from each U.S. State, three territories and the District of Columbia were selected as winners and invited to attend with their parents or guardians the First Ever Kids’ State Dinner with pomp and circumstance on August 20, 2012.
