(USA TODAY) The third-anniversary celebration of Michelle Obama's Let's Move! campaign is on the move.

The first lady has teamed up with Sesame Street(specifically, Big Bird) and released two public service announcements encouraging kids to reach for healthy snacks and get off the couch.

The shots were filmed in the White House. "Gee, I bet you could get just anything you want in this kitchen!" marvels Big Bird in one of them, standing among racks of stainless pots and a Vulcan range. Mrs. O, wearing a flower-festooned, poppy-colored twinset, talks up the handy carrying cases that come with oranges and bananas, for when "you're really on the go."

And then, in the second PSA, there's Big Bird, demonstrating his dance moves amid the ornate drapes and chandelier of a formal White House room. "Good for you, Big Bird!" cheers Mrs. O.

By the way, check out her new official photo portrait with her new bangs-and-bob hairstyle.
