Michelle Obama Talked Healthy Eating, Politics on 'The Daily Show'

Michelle Obama Talked Healthy Eating, Politics on 'The Daily Show'

She dropped by the set to chat with Jon Stewart last night

'American Grown' by Michelle Obama

First lady Michelle Obama popped by The Daily Show to chat with Jon Stewart about the release of her gardening-slash-cookbook American Grown. So while they talked about how kids should eat flatbreads rather than cheeseburgers (pile on the veggies), Jon Stewart also brought his own savvy as a dad of two kids (his wife, Tracey, owns a kid-friendly cafe in Tribeca).

Some tips Stewart takes away? "Engage your children... Do not leave them outside." Watch the two-part interview below (health talk happens in part one).


Watch Michelle Obama Hilariously Attempt to Get Jimmy Kimmel's Daughter Jane, 6, to Eat Vegetables

Michelle Obama is continuing her mission to get all children to eat healthy — no matter how stubborn they may be.

In an exclusive clip of Tuesday&aposs Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the former First Lady, 57, tries to convince host Jimmy Kimmel&aposs 6-year-old daughter Jane to diversify her appetite and eat vegetables.

"So Jane, why don&apost you like vegetables?" Obama, who was an advocate for healthy eating during her eight years in the White House, asks Jane.

"&aposCause," Jane says in hesitation while sitting beside her dad, "I don&apost really like to try new things."

Obama then says she can relate to Jane&aposs distaste for vegetables as a child.

"I know, I was like that when I was your age," the mom of two says. "But here&aposs what I learned: If you try something new, just try it, that you open up your taste buds and then you&aposll like a whole bunch of new things."

"So, can I get you to try, just try, a vegetable?" Obama asks as Kimmel, 53, places a plate of carrots in front of his daughter.

But Jane isn&apost interested in, as Obama previously put it, opening up her taste buds.

"No way. I can&apost," Jane says as she shakes her head.
