Photos:Healthy government school lunches you'll actually want to make at home
Is your school serving these award-winning recipes? – Local chefs teamed up with school nutritionists, kids, parents and other interested community members to brainstorm, create and test healthy recipes that were designed to make a better school lunch. They entered those recipes into a national Recipes for Healthy Kids competition, part of first lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move initiative. While it all happened back in 2010, those winning recipes are still just as tasty -- and nutritious -- today. Even if your local school is not including these healthy choices in their lunch menus -- and they probably should -- you can make them part of your back-to-school meal choices. We've included a link on every picture to the full recipe.
