Michelle Obama is not only sweeping the clouds away, she's attempting to do the same with one of the nation's more weighty issues.

She stopped by the fabled PBS set on Tuesday and filmed a PSA alongside Elmo as part of the Sesame Workshop's Healthy Habits for Life initiative. The country's most famous home gardener was careful not to put the entire get-fit onus on kids, however. She also encouraged adults to stay healthy in order to better serve as positive role models.

Someone better break it to the Cookie Monster.
