Saturday: Deadline for White House recipe contest

The April 5 deadline for this year's "Healthy Lunchtime Challenge," sponsored by First Lady Michelle Obama, is fast approaching.

Last year, Menlo Park resident Rose Scott was named California's winner for her pork and tofu lettuce cups recipe. She's ineligible to enter the contest again, her mother said, but her younger brother is trying his hand this year.

Children between the ages of 8 to 12 may enter an original lunch recipe of their own creation. Winners may get the chance to visit the White House to attend the "Kids' State Dinner," as Rose did last year.
