"Thank you all for teaching kids about healthy eating," Politico quoted Obama as telling the parents in the audience.

"I want to thank you for the patience you have all shown. I'm sure there are some wrecked kitchens," she said.

According to the report, the event had brought 54 children to the President's residence, all of whom had submitted a healthy recipe in a nationwide held contest.

The White House had asked kids to submit recipes that were "healthy, affordable and tasty," and picked a winner from each state and territory, the report said.

Winning recipes included "Kickin" chicken salad, and "Secret Service super salad" - the latter being created by a young man who was interested in joining the presidential protective service, it added.

"You're here because your recipes really stood out. And that's really saying something," Obama told the children.
