The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) held a recipe contest called Recipes for Healthy Kids. Teams of students (grades 4 to 12), school nutrition professionals, chefs, parents, and community members from across the country were challenged to partner and create tasty and healthy new recipes. These recipes incorporated whole grains, dry beans and peas, and dark green and orange vegetables. Here are the winning recipes along with other featured recipes.
