Hi! My name is Chloe Long. I am 12 years old, and I am going into 7th grade. Three summers ago, I was the winner from the state of Montana for the Healthy Kids Lunchtime Challenge. I entered an original recipe called “What You Don’t Like Tofu?!” Stir fry. I got to go to lunch with 53 other winners (from 50 United States and 4 territories) at the White House. We got to meet Michelle Obama, and she dined with us as well. It was an amazing unforgettable experience.

I have always been into cooking and healthy eating, but this past summer I really got into it. I love to cook meals to my liking, and health is very important to me. Keeping active and eating healthy food keeps me feeling great and energized. I decided to start this blog to teach other kids about the importance in healthy eating and how fun cooking for yourself, family, and friends can be.

I will be posting recipes, pictures, and facts about my meals that I make throughout the upcoming school year. It can be hard to have good, healthy meals when you have a busy schedule. I will be giving tips and tricks for packable lunches, energizing breakfasts, and great dinners.

With a combination of staying active and awesome food, I hope everyone has a wonderful, healthy school year. Happy cooking!
