Michelle Obama has a message for the incoming Trump Administration: Don't "touch" my school lunch program! 

The outgoing First Lady, appearing Wednesday night on NBC's "The Tonight Show," said her overhaul of school lunches "makes sense" and "we have to keep doing things that make sense for our future."

"It's, like, you know, nuts," Obama said of the idea it may be repealed. "We know our kids need to eat well. They need to eat healthy and we can’t, sort of, start changing that when they go to school."

Obama signaled that not only is she going to remain involved in children's health in the United States, but also the world.

"I will continue to stay involved in these issues as long as I live," she told host Jimmy Fallon. "So we’re going to keep sending those messages, hopefully not just here but around the world, working on girls’ education. So, yeah, I’m not done."

"I’m too young!" she emphasized. "I’m too young to stop!"
