Michelle Obama, aka The Fist Lady of the United States, is making an appearance on daytime television.
She'll be stopping by ABC's The Chew to mingle in the kitchen with co-hosts Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and Daphne Oz. The appearance was filmed earlier in the week, and will air Friday, Oct. 3.
The First Lady will discuss her Let's Move! initiative to combat childhood obesity. Topics like the nutritional value of school lunches, and the importance of home-cooked meals will be covered.
Sam Kass, assistant White House chef and executive director of Let’s Move!, also showed up to demonstrate a special recipe. It was developed by a young chef for the The Third Annual Lunchtime Challenge and Kids’ State Dinner.
“It was an honor to have The First Lady join us in our kitchen,” said Gordon Elliott, executive Producer of The Chew. “Mrs. Obama, along with Sam Kass and their team, are making real strides in the fight against childhood obesity and the nationwide need to improve the nutritional value of school lunches. We commend her for the work she, Sam and the Let’s Move! team are doing."
