Michelle Obama attempted to get Jimmy Kimmel's 6-year-old daughter, Jane, to eat vegetables during her appearance Tuesday on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Obama was promoting her new Netflix series, Waffles + Mochi, which aims to teach kids healthier eating habits. Unfortunately, the former first lady didn't have much success convincing Jane that vegetables are yummy.

Obama attempted to get Jane to try a carrot and a green bean. The little girl flatly rejected both suggestions. Even when Obama suggested she put a green bean on a piece of pizza, Jane scoffed at the notion.

During her eight years in the White House, Obama had great success in shining a spotlight on the importance of children eating healthier. She pushed for new regulations for more nutritious meals at school and enlisted the help of children to tend the massive vegetable garden she planted at the White House.

Despite all her previous success, and her usual charisma, Obama was unable to sway Jane to even take one bite of a vegetable. She even accused Jimmy Kimmel of setting her up.

"Well, this was an epic fail. This was a complete setup," said Obama. "That was a tough one. You know? She wasn't having it."

Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on ABC.
