Obamas Adopt Healthy Diet

First Lady Michelle Obama discusses the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue garden—and how going homegrown could benefit Americans.

It's no secret that the first family has made healthy living a family priority, and in the second installment of the internally produced "Inside the White House," Michelle Obama discusses the importance of a balanced, plant-based diet. The video, released earlier this week, chronicles the history of presidential gardening and provides an update on the garden spearheaded by Obama and White House chef Sam Kass. The project was inspired by the positive changes that Obama witnessed in her own family after switching from an unhealthy, convenience-driven diet to eating more whole foods. For Obama, the project is an important way to teach families the importance of balanced nutrition.
