Michelle Obama Hosts First-ever 'Lets Move' Healthy Eating 'State Dinner' for Kids to Beat Obesity

Campaigning to beat childhood obesity with exercise and good diet, US first Lady Michelle Obama hosted the first-ever 'state dinner' for children at the White house on Monday as part of her 'Lets Move' initiative.

"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.
