A fifth grader from Woodinville, Wash. has scored an invitation to the White House for her healthy lasagna recipe.

Amber Kelley, 10, was named the Washington state winner of the nationwide "Healthy Lunchtime Challenge," which was promoted by First Lady Michelle Obama. One child chef between the ages of 8 and 12 was chosen from every U.S. state, the three territories and the District of Columbia for creating a healthy, affordable, original and tasty recipe.

Amber and her mother have produced an online video show, "Kids Can Cook Too!" for the past year. Amber stars in the videos and her mother helps film and edit. Below is the video for her winning "Nummy No-Noodle Lasagna" recipe, which substitutes zucchini for noodles.

Amber and the other 53 winners of the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge will visit the White House today for a lunch with the First Lady, a performance by singer Rachel Crow and a visit to the White House kitchen garden.
