Presidential Tacos? Omaha Girl Heads to the White House with Recipe

By Justin Pazera. CREATED Jul 16, 2014

Omaha, NE -- Zienna Peterson's turkey taco recipe beat-out 1,500 other recipes in the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge. It's part of First Lady Michelle Obama's move to get kids healthy. "My cousin did it two years ago and she won and I also did it last year and entered and didn't win," said Peterson.

And what a difference a year makes. Zienna is packing for Washington. Her tacos will be served at the annual Kids' State Dinner at the White House. Of course Zienna and her mom will be there and so will Michelle Obama.

She's the oldest of five children. Her mom says eating healthy is one of the best lessons taught. Maybe this is proof that eating vegetables isn't so bad. At least it has Zienna convinced. "Because it's good for your body and it gives you the nutrients you need and to stay active."
