A rising fifth-grader at Glendover Elementary, Will Bingham, is Kentucky’s winner in the 2016 Healthy Lunchtime Challenge. This nationwide recipe contest for kids ages 8-12, which promotes cooking and healthy eating, received more than 1,200 entries featuring wholesome, tasty ingredients. The winners representing all U.S. states, five territories, and the District of Columbia are invited to a Kids’ State Dinner on July 14 at the White House, hosted by first lady Michelle Obama.
Will, 10, took top honors in the Commonwealth with his One Bag Bluegrass Bake recipe. “My family likes to go camping and hiking a lot,” he wrote in his contest entry. “My mom and I were trying to think of some healthy choices for lunch instead of hotdogs and hamburgers on the grill. So we came up with this one-bag bake that included seasonal veggies and local fish. We used an aluminum foil pouch and placed it in our campfire. It was a hit with our whole family! All we needed was our one bag and a fork. Now we make it at home all the time. Super yummy!”
Karen Bingham said her son always reminds his family to put “colors of the rainbow” on their plates, saying, “A colorful plate is a healthy plate.” Will has also been taking cooking classes at Healthy and Happy Ways. “He has learned how to cook and how to choose healthy food and make it delicious. He enjoys learning new things there and teaching us,” Bingham said.
