A 9-year-old student from Delaware County has been invited to join 53 other children from across the country for lunch with Michelle Obama at the White House next month.
Ganesh Selvakumar, who lives in Broomall and attends school in the Marple Newtown district, submitted a winning recipe to a contest promoting healthy lunches as part of Obama's "Let's Move!" initiative. The contest was held by the Departments of Education and Agriculture, and the winning students range in age from 8 to 12.
Ganesh's entry was a recipe for lentil spinach soup and mint chutney. Other winning recipes included dishes such as stuffed bell peppers, shrimp tacos, and lettuce wraps.
