Michelle Obama talks school nutrition, cooking at home in debut appearance on ABC's 'The Chew'

WASHINGTON - Michelle Obama is making her debut on the ABC daytime talk show "The Chew."

The network says a taped segment featuring the first lady talking about school nutrition and the benefits of cooking at home will air next Friday — Oct. 3.

She is joining co-hosts Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and Daphne Oz in their kitchen to discuss both issues.

Since 2010, Mrs. Obama has led a nationwide effort to combat childhood obesity.

The segment was taped this week when the first lady was in New York with President Barack Obama, who attended the U.N. General Assembly.
