(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Children from all over the country met with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for the Annual Kids State Dinner.

It's part of the second annual Healthy Lunchtime Challenge.

54 kids won a trip to the White House by coming up with healthy lunch recipes.

Winning recipes were chosen based on taste and originality, but they also had to be healthy and affordable.

The winners--all between 8 and 12 years of age--represent every state, three territories, and the District of Columbia.

8-year-old Jacob Hirsch is representing Michigan with his Picky Eater Pita Pizza Pockets.

Some of the First Lady's other favorite entries included Confetti Peanut Pastry Pasta, from Missouri, Pan-Smeared Catfish, from Mississippi, and a veggie burger from Texas.
