Guess Who Came to Dinner?

President Obama surprised guests -- the 54 children who'd won the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, a national recipe contest, and their mothers.

"I'm an OK cook," the president said, adding that his specialties include omelets and toast and the occasional bowl of chili. He warned the kids to not drop scraps on the White House's East Room floor because his dog, Bo, was on a diet.
