DALLAS — Michelle Obama says Dallas schools are leading the way in encouraging kids to eat right and exercise.

The first lady said that's why on Friday she made North Texas part of her three-day tour to promote the second anniversary of her "Let's Move" campaign.

She says the Dallas school district has more schools participating in the nation's Healthier U.S. Schools Challenge at the highest level — the gold standard — than in any other state.

In a fun way to highlight the importance of healthy food and active bodies, Michelle Obama helped judge a cooking contest between cooks from Bravo's "Top Chef" with "hype" assistance from the Dallas Cowboys and student "sous-chefs" (SOO SHEHFS) from Nancy Moseley Elementary School in southeastern Dallas.

In the end, she pronounced them all winners.
