CLINTON, Miss.--Fresh off the Oscars, First Lady Michelle Obama is expected in the Magnolia State today to visit with children at two Clinto elementary schools. News Mississippi is told by parents that only a select number of students will be able to see Obama. The rest are being sent home.
The First Lady will bring along famous chef Rachel Ray. The two are expected to cook and deliver a message about healthy eating.
Obama has advocated a change in diet for school children across the country. She says she is leading a nation-wide fight against obesity, especially childhood obesity. Mississippi leads the nation in both.
