Fruits and vegetables: Great even for Muppets
October 31, 2013

As part of her initiative to promote a healthier and more active lifestyle for children across the United States, First Lady Michelle Obama recently appeared in a series of videos involving the muppets of Sesame Street.

In the clip below, Obama appears during a press event with Elmo (who cleans up very nicely in a tie!) and Rosita. The muppets express their enthusiasm for eating fruits and vegetables every day. A healthy diet is a huge part of living a healthy lifestyle, more so for diabetes sufferers. For children diagnosed with diabetes, diet can be one of the most difficult struggles both to endure and simply to understand. But with the help of programs like "Sesame Street," children can be taught the importance of maintaining that diet for their future in a way that perhaps parental or doctoral lectures cannot.
