Come earned an invitation to the First Lady's Kids State Dinner to promote healthy living and fight childhood obesity.
He will attend as an official "farm-to-fork kids correspondent" at Tuesday's media event at noon EDT (9 a.m. PDT) in the East Room of the White House. He said he plans to upload his interviews and coverage live at his website, www.nicolasgarden.com.
In addition to Mrs. Obama, Nicolas plans to interview other youth attending the event. Most of the invitees developed healthy kid-friendly recipes using fresh fruit and vegetables.
Come's own recipe that he developed for the First Lady's healthy lunch contest (a colorful chicken curry) did not win, but he received permission to attend as a member of the media. Tuesday, he will be among the youngest reporters in the White House press corps.
Nicolas received worldwide attention for his mobile recipe app, Nicolas' Garden, which launched earlier this year.
