What’s it all about? Last summer, Hey Kids Let’s Cook! producer, host and creator Kathy Powers was among the few media honored to take viewers inside the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, where 54 kids, their parents or guardians took in a full day’s activities in the White House and showcased their hand-picked healthy recipes at the Kids’ State Dinner. Hey Kids, Let’s Cook! went along with the kids right inside the East Room to experience the magical event from start to finish. This episode excerpt features Emma, Hey Kids, Let’s Cook!’s animated chef as she takes kids us up close and personal for all the fun and excitement. Emma shares with kids what it feels like to have their recipe selected and spend a whole day inside the White House with First Lady Michelle Obama, White House Chef Sam Kass, and special guest President Barack Obama:
Rose Scott, one of last year’s Healthy Lunchtime Challenge winners from California, makes an appearance on the show and shares her pork and tofu lettuce wrap recipe. She says to kids across America “I definitely think you guys should enter because you could win, and also, even if you don’t win you still have an amazing recipe that you could share with your friends and family!”
So Powers, who will be shooting another episode of Hey Kids, Let’s Cook! at the White House again this year, urges kids to join in the fun now and enter online (kids can mail in entries as well).
Parents or Guardians! Entries must be submitted by 11:59PM April 5, 2014 or be postmarked by April 5. This cooking competition is fun, mouth-watering, rewarding and a chance for kids to show off their cooking skills to the nation. Winning recipes need just five simple requirements;
Kids love to be creative in the kitchen and this is a perfect time!
