For the cafeteria cook-off, each school chef was paired with a professional chef and each team was given 30 minutes to prepare a lunch for 20 kids that met federal nutrition guidelines.

One team fixed two types of fajitas and a fruit smoothie, while the other team whipped up a turkey Sloppy Joe sandwich on a patty made of quinoa, fruit salad with a sour cream and honey dressing and broccoli trees.

A panel of 20 students from the school judged the finished products. Mrs. Obama and Ray also sampled the lunches and kept saying how delicious they were.

“If these kids are eating like this every day,” said Ray, “I’m coming to lunch here,” added Mrs. Obama.

The competition was held for Ray’s daytime talk-show, and the results are to be revealed during the March 11 broadcast.
