A few months back we traveled to Washington, DC to help judge the “Just for Kids State Dinner” recipe contest.
We thought that was the ultimate in cool … until we were invited to attend — AND SPEAK — at the State Dinner in August! Nothing could get better than that.
And then we were told the biggest news of all… Marshall would be introduce the First Lady herself.
Take a look. It’s Marshall gushing and Mrs. Obama enjoying every minute of it.
The Portion Size Me journey just keeps getting better and better!

The Portion Size Me family had a blast at Taste of Atlanta last week. Marshall was at his best talking to kids and families about simple ways to be healthier.
If we met you there in person, leave us a comment saying hello. If you missed it (or don’t leave near Atlanta), take a look at the videos below to see what Marshall cooked up.
