Sesame Street's Elmo visited White House assistant chef Sam Kass in the White House kitchen to talk about what types of foods Elmo can expect since he'll be going to school soon. The video is really a plug for the recently signed Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, and it showcases what the new lunches should look like once everything is in place.

I'm really looking forward to the day when the lunches at my boys' schools actually look like this. Until then, I'll keep packing their lunches at home the majority of the time.
