A new show that is called Listen Your Vegetables & Eat Your Parents, will be a half-hour series that was made by the former president and first lady- the Obama’s. This new show revolves around one of the most important goals to Michelle in the Obama Presidency, healthy eating. They believe the show will be a fun yet informative way to inspire kids to eat more healthy in life. NETFLIX has not announced if the show will premiere or not. It is also not certain if the show will be a live action or animated series.

During her time in the White House, former First Lady, Michelle Obama, encouraged others to follow a healthy lifestyle through her “Let’s Move” campaign. Even if the Obama’s no longer live in the people’s house, they still hope to fight the problem of American obesity. The problem has gotten bigger of course, now moving towards a lot of children. They believe the fight is still not over and they are pushing toward a healthier United States. She made school lunches more healthier and convinced the FDA to display warnings about added sugars to food. Details about the show have not been released yet as the show is still a heavy work in progress. NETFLIX stated the show will appear over the next “several years.” So it is still a long way until it’s release.

Higher Ground, the production company that is producing Listen Your Vegetables & Eat Your Parents, will also be producing another show. The show is set to be based on a post WWII fashion scene and an alteration on New York Time’s series Overlooked. Obama announced that the shows will be, “Touching on issues of race and class, democracy and civil rights and much more, we believe each of these productions won’t just entertain, but will educate, connect and inspire us all.”

At the end of the day, Obesity is still a large and deadly problem in America. As the problem grows larger among children, even if the Obama’s are no longer in office, they hope to continue to fight it through awaring children because of this new show. It is still a long way to go before its release or if it will be announced on NETFLIX. The producers and lots of  people still hope the show will make a long withstanding effect on children and adults alike.
