Girl wins White House food challenge for California Rainbow Taco with Barack-amole

SAN FRANCISCO -- A Bay Area girl is one of the winners of the White House Healthy Food Challenge.

San Francisco resident Aria Pelaez, 9, was California's winner for her California Rainbow Taco with Mic-Kale Obama Slaw and Barack-amole.

She'll join 54 other winners from across the country for a lunch with First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House.

Aria says she's looking forward to meeting the first lady. "I think it's really inspiring and it's great that she says that to help other kids learn that it's not good to just to eat junk food all day. It's good to have healthy food, that's good tasting," she said.

This is the fourth year of the healthy lunchtime challenge.
