OAKWOOD -- This Kid to Know's recipe was his ticket to the White House. Taddy Pettit loves burritos, so when his step-dad suggested he enter a kids' cooking contest, he knew exactly what he wanted to make.

The contest was to create a healthy lunch recipe. The prize was a chance to go to the White House, so Taddy and Ryan got to work creating a black bean wrap with jicama-grilled corn salsa. It was good enough to beat all the entries from Illinois.

Taddy and the other state winners got to have lunch with the President and First Lady. Taddy says the best part of the experience was that President Obama spent more time talking to him than the other kids because he's from Illinois. Taddy also says the First Lady is really, really tall.
