    Michelle Obama joined Jay Leno on Tuesday night.

    The First Lady got some laughs on "The Tonight Show".

    Michelle Obama tried to break Jay Leno's self-proclaimed unhealthy eating habits by giving him some fruits and vegetables grown at the White House.

    The first lady told Leno he is a role model so he needs to try vegetables every once in awhile.  The late night funny man responded by offering her a plate of beets, a food she said she does not like.

    Mrs. Obama played along and took a bite.

    The first lady also promoted her "Let's Move" campaign that's designed to get kids excited about fitness and healthy eating.
