WASHINGTON -- Michelle Obama is working again with Epicurious and the departments of Education and Agriculture on a third nationwide recipe contest to promote healthy eating among kids.

The third Healthy Lunchtime Challenge ends in the summer with a kids' "state dinner" at the White House. Some of the winning recipes will be served.

Eight- to 12-year-olds from all 50 states and six U.S. territories are invited to submit an original recipe for a healthy, affordable and tasty lunch. Recipes must follow Agriculture Department guidelines for a healthful meal and fruits and vegetables must make up about half of the plate or recipe.

Recipes can be submitted through April 5.

More information and the contest rules can be found online, at recipechallenge.epicurious.com.
