iCarly star partners with Birds Eye to motivate kids to eat their vegetables

Nickelodeon's award-winning comedy iCarly has been a hit with young viewers for five seasons and is notable for featuring topical subjects and newsworthy guests.

In conjunction with Birds Eye, the show has now launched a new campaign to try to get kids to eat their vegetables. Aiming to help kids look at vegetables in a new way, the show's star, Jennette McCurdy, is to become a "veggie loving ambassador."

McCurdy joins Soledad O'Brien on Starting Point this morning to discuss the initiative and to explain what it was like to work with Michelle Obama when she appeared on the show.
