Michelle Obama preaches healthy on Sesame Street!

Posted on October 5th, 2009 by Jim

tick tockFresh (ish) from my New York trip I unfortunately didn’t get to catch up with the gang from Sesame Street as I was’nt sure if it was set in the Bronx or Queens! The trip was a success as an East Coast publisher requested the manuscript of GO! Smell the flowers so we’ll have to wait & see.

With the U.S  of A’s hearty food portions (tick tock diner filled me up) I was never short of energy enjoying walking around the east side, meat packing district, MOMA, Bryant Park and the theatre district. 

Central park by horse, Manhatten island by boat and the subway wherever possible I really got back into the New York way of life (beep, beep)

Back to the topic in hand – FOOD! I was impressed to find this clip of one of the most powerful women in the world preaching healthy foods on Sesame street, brough to us, of course, by the Childrens Television workshop:

Good old Elmo, taking it in his stride and I wonder if cookie monster is now surplus to requirements?

  1. Interesting…I left a comment here that was posted and now it is gone…*poof* I said something like I liked this video, but I wished she would have answered Elmo’s question of what a healthy lunch would be. He is so cute. Is there any significance to 8, F, Y & I?

  2. Admirable Mrs. Obama.
    I think portions for the whole North American diet could use reducing by aboiut 30%. Did anyone see the documentary Super Size Me? I don’t think I have eaten at MacDonald’s since.
