MyPlate Kids' Place
For the last three years, the White House has challenged America's junior chefs to create original lunchtime recipes that were healthy, affordable, delicious, and followed the nutritional guidelines of MyPlate. The 2014 Healthy Lunchtime Challenge Cookbook contains the most recent group of 54 winning recipes -- some of which were featured at the Kids' State Dinner at the White House. This event, which was hosted by President and Mrs. Obama, celebrated the ingenuity of the budding young chefs. The 2013 and 2012 cookbooks are also available to download.
