Children from across the nation will have a chance to dine like dignitaries and politicians at the White House
this summer as part of a contest to promote healthy eating.

Michelle Obama is asking children ages 8 to 12 and their parents to create nutritious lunch recipes that represent each of the food groups.

Winners of "The Healthy Lunchtime Challenge" will travel to the nation's capital to dine on some of the healthy creations at a White House kids' "state dinner" in August.

The best recipes will be selected by a panel including White House chef Sam Kass and a celebrity chef.

The deadline to submit recipes is June 17.

The contest is a partnership with Epicurious.com and the departments of Education and Agriculture.
