After a much-needed respite from the public eye, former first lady Michelle Obama will soon be back in our lives.

According to the Washington Times, Obama will appear as a guest judge on the fifth season of MasterChef Junior in late February. She will join chefs Gordon Ramsay and Christina Tosi to judge children between the ages of 8 and 13 who are competing for a $100,000 prize.


Given her advocacy for healthy eating during her time in the White House, Obama will most likely have the kids prepare a healthy meal.

Not only did she revive the White House vegetable garden (which Melania Trump said she would keep), but she also founded the Let’s Move! Initiative in 2010 that promoted regular exercise and healthy food choices.

Other notable guest judges will include Martha Stewart and the Muppets. We can’t wait!
