WASHINGTON (AP) — Junior chefs from across the nation touting their best recipes will visit the White House next week for the second kids' "state dinner" luncheon.

Michelle Obama will welcome 54 children to the executive mansion on July 9 for creating winning recipes as part of a healthy lunch contest. The youngsters will dine on some of the top dishes at their "state dinner" and tour the White House vegetable garden. "The X Factor" alum singer Rachel Crow will also perform.

Some of the winning recipes include sushi salad, sweet potato turkey sliders, hidden veggie lasagna and salmon fried rice. More than 1,300 children ages 8 to 12 entered the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge.

The contest is a partnership among Mrs. Obama, the food site Epicurious.com and the Education and Agriculture departments.
