WATCH: Michelle Obama to Launch Children’s Cooking Show “Waffles + Mochi” on Netflix on March 16

Michelle Obama is launching her own children’s cooking show on Netflix. Premiering March 16, Waffles + Mochi, tells the story of two friends, Waffles and Mochi, who dream to escape The Land of Frozen Food and become chefs. They see their dreams start to become a reality once they are hired at a whimsical new supermarket.

“With the help of friendly new faces like the supermarket owner, Mrs. Obama, and a magical flying shopping cart as their guide, Waffles and Mochi blast off on global ingredient missions, traveling to kitchens, restaurants, farms and homes all over the world, cooking up recipes with everyday ingredients alongside renowned chefs, home cooks, kids and celebrities,” Netflix explained in a statement describing the premise of the show.

The theme of the 10 episode series is in line with the former First Lady’s “Let’s Move” public health campaign and hopes to promote healthy eating while inviting parents and children into the kitchen to cook together and explore different cultures through food.

The show aspires to spark a similar conversation and open up important dialogues about cooking, developing healthy eating habits and creating meaningful connections through food.
