(Relaxnews) – As part of her ongoing crusade against obesity, US First Lady Michelle Obama will make a cameo appearance on Amy Poehler’s show, NBC has announced.

Healthy eating and regular exercise, two causes championed by Michelle Obama since her arrival in the White House in 2009, will be mentioned in the sixth-season finale of the comedy series “Parks and Recreation.”

Seizing the opportunity, the President’s wife will appear in the episode, titled “Moving Up,” which will air April 24 on NBC. Michelle Obama will mention her “Let’s Move” campaign, through which she has endeavored to battle obesity, and particularly child obesity, in the US over the past five years.

In an effort to bring her message of health and wellness to the widest possible audience, the first lady has already made an appearance on the weight loss reality TV show “The Biggest Loser.”
