Michelle Obama to promote gardening on Sesame Street

Author: Reuters

Obama, who is planting a fruit and vegetable garden on the grounds of the
White House, will appear in the November10 season debut of “Sesame Street”
— the educational show for kids that is broadcast in more than 120
countries around the world.

Producers said on Tuesday that Obama will teach the furry “residents” of
Sesame Street about the benefits of growing a garden and healthy living, and
will show children how to plant tomato, cucumber and lettuce seeds.

“All these seeds need to grow are sun, soil and water. If you eat these
healthy foods, you’re going to grow up to be big and strong, like me,” Obama
says.

“I know you’re going to like these vegetables, because in addition to being
healthy, they really taste great!”

The new season will highlight a two-year science initiative on “Sesame Street”
called “My World is Green & Growing.” The show is broadcast on public
television in the United States.

Michelle Obama in March broke ground on the first fruit and vegetable garden
at the White House since World War Two. The 1,100 sq ft garden will grow
some 50 fruits and vegetables for use in the White House kitchen.

Other celebrities due to make “Sesame Street” guest appearances in the 40th
season include actresses Cameron Diaz, Eva Longoria-Parker, British comedy
actor Ricky Gervais and U.S. basketball star Kobe Bryant.
