SHARE PHOTOS: Michelle Obama treats recipe contest winners to ‘state dinner’

The students were invited to what really was lunch after winning a nationwide contest to develop healthy lunch recipes.

The menu featured several of the students’ recipes, including the winner from California: a taco served with “Mic-Kale Obama Slaw” and “Barack-amole.”

Mrs. Obama says the students who spent Friday at the White House understand that “food is fuel.” But she says a lot of their friends have yet to make the same connection.
