BURBANK, Calif. — Jay Leno better bring a healthy appetite to the “Tonight Show.”

Michelle Obama heads to Leno’s stage Tuesday to promote fitness and healthy eating, and she’s taunting the comedian to overcome his aversion for the green stuff.

Leno once told a magazine he hadn’t eaten a vegetable since 1969.

The first lady poked at him in a Twitter post, hinting she’d “get Jay to eat some veggies.”

The first lady is on a two-day swing through California where she’ll promote her “Let’s Move!” campaign to boost healthy food and fitness and help Democrats raise money for the upcoming elections.
