Washington, June 11 (ANI): One child from every state and territory in the US will reportedly be invited to a kids' state dinner in August, as a part of First Lady Michelle Obama's 'Let's Move!' initiative.

Let's Move! is inviting kids aged eight to 12 from across the country to submit healthy lunch recipes for a chance to win a dinner invite.

Moreover, some of the winning recipes will be served at the dinner.

"We all want to ensure that our kids are eating nutritious, delicious food at every meal, and as a mom I know that parents are always looking for new ideas to make that happen," Politico quoted The First Lady as saying.

"With parents and kids all across the country getting creative in the kitchen, I know we'll find healthy meals that every family will enjoy. And I can't wait to try the kids' creations myself," she added. (ANI)
