MIAMI (AP) — Michelle Obama is scheduled to appear on the popular Spanish-language variety show “Sabado Gigante”.

Univision says the first lady will deliver a message Saturday to Hispanic children and families about the importance of eating healthy and staying active. Michelle Obama has made combating childhood obesity a priority through her “Let’s Move!” campaign.

A study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that after decades of rising, childhood obesity rates have essentially been flat in recent years. About 12 percent of all U.S. children ages 2 to 5 were obese in 2009 through 2010. However, for Hispanic children that number was about 4 points higher.

“Sabado Gigante” or “Giant Saturday” is the world’s longest-running variety show. It airs at 8 p.m. on Univision. It’s filmed in South Florida.
