We know how hard it can be to eat healthy meals every single day. In an effort to make the job easier for all of us, the White House announced the partnership of major media companies and the First Lady’s Let’s Move campaign to compile all of their nutritious recipes that meet the USDA’s MyPlate guidelines.

“As a mom, I know how challenging it can be to think of new meal ideas that your kids will like and that will be good for them,” Michelle Obama said in a statement. “This partnership takes the guesswork out of finding healthier recipes and gives parents the information and the tools they need to make healthy choices for their families every day.”

Media companies involved in the partnership include Conde Nast, Hearst Magazines, Merdith, Food Network, and Time. The recipes will be featured on the companies’ cooking websites, which include Epicurious, Real Simple, and Food Network, to name a few.

Another partner, Pinterest, has collected almost 1,000 of the MyPlate-worthy recipes onto one page. Here are a few of our favorites, which prove meals can be both healthy and delicious.
