Michelle is beyond excited to launch her new show on Netflix in March 

She continued: "It's all about good food: discovering it, cooking it, and of course, eating it. These two will take us on adventures all around the world to explore new ingredients and try out new recipes.

"Kids will love it, but I know that adults will also get plenty of laughs - and some tips for the kitchen."

Michelle went on to explain more: "In many ways, this show is an extension of my work to support children’s health as First Lady—and to be quite honest, I wish a program like this had been around when my girls were young. 

"I also know that this is a difficult time for so many families, and I’m hopeful that this delightful show can bring a bit of light and laughter to homes around the world.

"That’s why as part of the show's commitment to helping families during the pandemic, we're working with our partners at @PHAnews to get fresh ingredients to families in need across the country so they can cook together at home.

"So that’s what #WafflesAndMochi is all about. I can’t wait for you and your children to join us on our adventures on March 16."

Her fans were over the moon with the news and wrote: "Love you so much Michelle!!! Thanks for being such an incredible role model for us all," and, "this is such a wonderful cause we definitely need a show like that to educate kids and families on values of healthy eating."
