2014 Healthy Lunchtime Challenge

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Kids, it's time to get cookin'! First Lady Michelle Obama is organizing a third nationwide recipe contest for children to promote healthy eating.

Eight to 12-year-olds from all 50 states are invited to submit an original recipe for a healthy, affordable and tasty lunch.

Fruits and vegetables must make up about half of the plate or recipe.

The deadline is April 5th.

The challenge ends with a kids' "State Dinner" at the White House this summer.
