South Dakota Boy Is Going to the White House Thanks to Winning Recipe
HURON, S.D. (AP) – A 9-year-old Huron boy has been selected to attend a lunch at the White House with the First Lady.
Owen Kerkvliet will join 53 other students from across the U.S. at the July 9 lunch as part of a nationwide recipe challenge to promote healthy lunches. Kerkvliet’s winning recipe is called hidden veggie lasagna.
Children ages 8-12 were asked to create an original lunchtime recipe that is healthy and affordable.
More than 1,300 entries were received. The challenge was created as part of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign to help solve the problem of childhood obesity.
