The first lady joined co-hosts Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and Daphne Oz earlier this week to discuss improving school nutrition and the importance of cooking at home, ABC announced Friday. Obama was also joined by Sam Kass, assistant White House chef and executive director of her Let’s Move! Initiative to fight childhood obesity.
“It was an honor to have the first lady join us in our kitchen,” said executive producer Gordon Elliott. "Ms. Obama, along with Sam Kass and their team, are making real strides in the fight against childhood obesity and the nationwide need to improve the nutritional value of school lunches. We commend her for the work she, Sam and the Let’s Move! team are doing."
During their appearance, Kass demonstrated a recipe created by a young chef at the Third Annual Lunchtime Challenge and Kids’ State Dinner. The episode will air on Oct. 3 at 1 p.m. ET on ABC.
