WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House is taking a day off from the “Let’s Move” campaign while enjoying the Super Bowl.

The campaign, led by First Lady Michelle Obama, is focused on curbing obesity, but she admits that the first family takes “Let’s Move” off the table for the big game.

President Barack Obama says the Obamas will watch the game with a regular group of friends. The president says they’ll eat wings, pizza and nachos. He says there’s also a vegetable tray “that nobody touches.”

Michelle Obama says the football game’s serious watchers go to the Treaty Room of the White House. She also says there’s a champagne room “where you really don’t know what’s going on, but you’re close to the champagne.”

The president and first lady spoke before the game to CBS News’ Gayle King.
