Michelle Obama was on the set of Sesame Street in New York this week. She met Elmo, Big Bird and really enjoyed the visit. First Lady Obama was there to talk about healthy eating and nutrition, which Sesame Street has been talking about for a while. Even Cookie Monster has realized that cookies are a sometimes food. Childhood obesity can have disastrous effects on an individual. The message of healthy eating has been discussed many times, but it needs to be said over and over again until parents and children make changes in how they eat.
