I, we are going to plant some carrot seeds. ELMO: Wow. Whew, look at how tiny
those seeds are. MRS. OBAMA: They sure are, but
these little seeds are going to make some great
tasting food. BIG BIRD: Wow! Did I just hear right? The First Lady eats seeds? MRS. OBAMA: Well, Big Bird– BIG BIRD: Ah, well,
I love seeds. I didn’t know you
ate them, too. Are you part bird? MRS. OBAMA: No, Big
Bird, I’m not. BIG BIRD: You sure? Ha, ha. You and I are both
really tall. Maybe we’re from the
same family. I’m sure, Big Bird. You see, I really don’t eat
these kind of seeds at all. BIG BIRD: Oh. MRS. OBAMA: But I do eat what
grows from these seeds. BIG BIRD: Oh. ELMO: Yeah, lots of carrots, and
tomatoes, and cucumbers, and lettuce. MRS. OBAMA: Like these

tiny little seeds? MRS. OBAMA: That’s right. All these seeds need to grow are
some sun, soil, and water. And you know what, guys? If you eat all of these healthy
