Michelle Obama made her second appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart last night to promote her book American Grown, which focuses on the White House garden, gardens across America and eating well.
Obama stresses the importance of knowing where your produce comes from, especially when enforcing healthy eating habits with children. “The garden is a way to begin the conversation,” she says. “What I also learned in changing my kids’ habits are that if kids are involved in the growth process of food, and they get a better understanding of where their food comes from, and they’re engaged, they tend to be more likely to be excited about it.”
Stewart feigns ignorance and pretends to take notes. “I’m just going to write this down, ‘Engage your children. Do not leave them outside.’”
