My favorite thing that I did today
was one part of going to the White House,
and the President of the United States came over
and I shook his hands and talked to him.
That was pretty exciting.
Well, we talked about like life and normal stuff,
and I asked him questions and he gave me the answers.
(upbeat piano music)
[Michelle] Hi. (audience applauding)
[Barack] How are you?
[Michelle] Good to see you, welcome.
Well, hello everybody. (audience cheering)
Well hey, everybody have a seat, have a seat.
I wanted to come by first of all
because everybody looks very nice,
you guys all got dressed up.
Second of all, I hear the food is pretty good.
All of you have lifted up the whole fact that
food can be fun, it can be healthy.
When you combine it with the work that Michelle's been doing
and I know all of you were involved with Let's Move.
Eating healthy, living healthy.
You are setting up habits
that are gonna be great for your entire life,
and you're setting a great example for your classmates,
and I suspect you're setting
a good example for your parents.
To think that all of you have invented
all this fabulous food,
just shows how creative you are, and it shows that
food that tastes good can be healthy too.
