Michelle Obama visits Sesame Street and promotes healthy eating and being active
Posted on May 15, 2009 by Maggie LaBarbera
Michelle Obama is truly rising as one of our most health minded mothers/First Lady. First, she is planting a garden in the White House and now she is on Sesame Street promoting healthy habits.
Here is a cute public service announcement Michelle Obama made with Elmo talking about her activities while visiting Sesame Street. It's about a minute long and worth watching with your little one!
She brings out three key messages:
- healthy lunches
- the importance of daily exercise can be as simple as taking a walk around the neighborhood
- parents are important role models by showing their child how to have healthy habits
After watching the video with your child, it is a great intro to talking about what is healthy eating and how much exercise do we need and why. It is nice to see some cute, kid-friendly advertising that promotes a positive message about nutrition and exercise.
