Michelle Obama Convinces Leno to Eat Veggies

Michelle Obama was absolutely glowing on Tuesday night when she strode out onto the “Tonight Show” stage.
She was making her first late-night TV appearance since becoming the first lady, but she looked calm and confident while chatting up host Jay Leno.
First lady Obama cajoled Jay Leno into nibbling on apples, sweet potato fries and a pizza made with eggplant, green peppers and zucchini on the “Tonight Show,” in defiance of his long-held aversion for all-things-healthy in his diet.
Leno once told a magazine he had not eaten a vegetable since 1969, and he insisted he tasted his last apple in 1984. That didn’t dissuade the first lady, who was  promoting her “Let’s Move!” campaign to get kids excited about fitness and healthy eating habits. Unlike many celebrity guests, she did not  go with a low-cut cocktail dress or anything dramatic — just her mint green J. Crew skirt (the one she wore to 10 Downing Street in 2009 with the rhinestone-covered cardigan), a thin, gold-flecked sweater by Michael Kors and a pair of low, pointed-toe heels. She made the skirt new with a bejeweled gold belt.
