Kids from around the country who participate in Let's Move programs joined first lady Michelle Obama to help plant the White House Kitchen Garden on Wednesday.

Obama challenged community gardens across the nation to join them in planting the five vegetables they added: broccoli, spinach, bok choy, radishes and lettuce.

The first lady also announced the launch of an interactive online map where Americans can find and get involved with Let's Move programs in their communities.

Here are some photos from the event:
