Michelle Obama in Video With Big Bird for Anti-Obesity Campaign
Michelle Obama, pushing her “Let’s Move” program, invited someone to join in her in a video stressing healthy eating for children—someone who usually only eats bird feed.
Michelle: Hi! We’re here in the White House kitchen looking for a healthy snack to eat.
Big Bird: "Gee. I bet you could get just everything you want in this kitchen.
Michelle: “But you know what I like to reach for?”

Michelle: "Healthy colorful snacks like juicy fruits and crunchy vegetables."
Big Bird: “Those look good.”
Michelle: “And If you’re really on the go, some also come in their own carrying cases like this orange. See? It has a hard peel.”
Big Bird: “Look, so does this banana.”
Michelle: “Eating healthy is easy, and it’s fun and delicious, too.”
It’s a timely video, because the way the economy is going, we’ll soon be reduced to eating nuts and berries.
