The young winners, from all U.S. states, territories and the District of Columbia, will be recognized at a children's "State Dinner" at the White House hosted by Mrs. Obama on Aug. 20. The group will join the first Lady for a healthy lunch, featuring a selection of the winning recipes, followed by a tour of the White House kitchen garden.
A free downloadable and printable e-cookbook of the winning recipes, including nutritional analyses, will be available in late August at http://recipechallenge.epicurious.com, letsmove.gov, USDA.gov, and Ed.gov.
