WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama stopped by Jimmy Fallon's revamped "Tonight Show" to chat about family life in the White House and promote two of her causes, healthy eating and fighting fat.

The first lady also put in a plug for her husband's health care law.

Mrs. Obama appeared in a silly skit with Fallon and comedian Will Ferrell. Then, in a sit-down interview Thursday, told Fallon, who's wrapping up his first week as host of the long-running NBC show, that President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are getting ready to show America "how they move."

With her signature charm and humor, Mrs. Obama also talked about the challenge of raising two young daughters, ages 12 and 15, in the rarified world of the White House.

"They want nothing to do with us," she laughed.

"They really want normalcy and the White House isn't normal," Mrs. Obama said. "I'll say 'Don't you want to invite your friends over to watch a movie?' They say 'No one wants to come here.'"

She then cautioned that her older daughter turns 16 this summer and is ready to learn to drive.
