MILWAUKEE (WKOW) – Two junior chefs from Wisconsin and Minnesota are preparing to have lunch with first lady Michelle Obama at the White House on Tuesday.

Liam Kivirist is an 11-year-old from Browntown and Kaitlyn Kirchner is a 9-year-old from Madelia, MN.  They are among the winners of a White House contest that asked kids between the ages of 8 to 12 to create healthy lunchtime recipes.

Liam won with his chili, simmered in a solar oven, while Kaitlyn came up with a garden stir fry featuring vegetables her family grows in their garden.

Both of the kids say they've been cooking since they were little.  They also say they are thrilled to have lunch with Mrs. Obama.
