NASHVILLE (AP) – Tennessee First Lady Crissy Haslam is teaming up with Grover, the loveable Muppet from Sesame Street, and United HealthCare to teach kids the benefits of eating healthy and getting in shape while helping them learn to love reading.

The First Lady will meet with a group of kindergartners and pre-K students at Buena Vista Enhanced Option School in Nashville on Tuesday and read to the children Sesame Street's book "Food for Thought: Eating Well on a Budget." The event will combine the First Lady's mission of helping kids to be better readers and Sesame Street's efforts to teach kids about nutritious eating. Haslam will read to the children before they engage in an interactive session on healthy food.

Tennessee is said to have an obesity rate of 30 percent.
