The White House and Sesame Street have partnered to help encourage kids to eat fruits and vegetables. Elmo and Rosita joined First Lady Michelle Obama at a press event to announce that Sesame Workshop and the Produce Marketing Association joined the Partnership for a Healthier America. Sesame Street Muppet characters will help in the effort to get children to eat healthier foods. Elmo and Rosita also stopped The White House garden. Michelle Obama shared a photo from the garden on her Instagram account.

Elmo says, "Elmo loves healthy foods. Elmo thinks that fruits and vegetables are delicious." A longer version of the video can be seen here. Take a look:
