Waffles + Mochi, and Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama can truly do it all. She has written a bestselling memoir, recorded a Spotify podcast, and now, her latest endeavour is a cooking show for children.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has long been an advocate of healthy eating. In 2010, she launched ‘Let’s Move!’, a public campaign intending to curb childhood obesity, which saw her doing push-ups on Ellen and organising clean food initiatives across the Land of the Free. And now, she is moving on with Waffles + Mochi, a kid-centric cooking show which debuts on March 16th of this year on Netflix.

The show, which Obama will both produce and star in, follows two puppets – aptly named Waffles and Mochi – on their whimsical culinary journey. According to Obama, “It’s all about good food: discovering it, cooking it, and of course, eating it.” So – whether it is with a celebrity chef or home cook, on a farm in the countryside or kitchen in Washington – expect simple, delicious, and, most importantly, nutritious recipes that will appeal to children and adults alike.

Such a programme could not come at a better time. As the world hunkers down in quarantine, waiting out what appears to be a lengthy pandemic, Waffles + Mochi promises to be a source of relief for families. In Obama’s words, “I’m hopeful that this delightful show can bring a bit of light and laughter to homes around the world.”
