Michelle Obama teams up with Big Bird for ‘Let’s Move!’

The Ticket

First lady Michelle Obama wants you to eat your vegetables—and she has Big Bird to help her spread the message.

Obama invited Sesame Street to the White House, where she and the Muppet recorded two new public service announcements related to her "Let's Move!" healthy eating and exercise initiative for children.

"Hi, we're here in the White House kitchen looking for a healthy snack to eat," Obama says in one ad promoting fruits and vegetables as healthy snacks.

The other commercial advocates exercise and offers viewers a chance to see Big Bird "getting moving" in the East Room.
