Michelle Obama will promote gardening on the 40th anniversary season of Sesame Street, show producers announced Tuesday.

The First Lady will teach the residents about eating healthy on the Nov. 10 premiere. She'll plant tomato, cucumber and lettuce seeds on the classic kids show.

"All these seeds need to grow are sun, soil and water. If you eat these healthy foods, you're going to grow up to be big and strong, like me," Obama says. "I know you're going to like these vegetables, because in addition to being healthy, they really taste great!"
