The first lady sits down with Jon Stewart to talk about her book ‘American Grown,’ getting children to eat well, and beginning the conversation about eating well by growing a garden.

I love this interview that Jon Stewart did with Michelle Obama on “The Daily Show
” the other night. In promoting her new book “American Grown
” and vegetable gardening, she defends her stance that kids will enjoy a “vegetable feast” - without the “cheese faucet” that Stewart thinks kids would want to go with those vegetables. She talks about her relationship with the President and discusses her family’s relationship with the Vice-President, all while expertly and humorously answering all of Stewart’s questions without, as she said, “taking any bait.”
That was an enjoyable 10 minutes, don’t you think?
