Why Obama Fears the White House Will Get Egged on Halloween

10/25/2011 at 09:55 PM EDT

If there's one thing that raises the ire of excited trick-or-treaters Halloween, it's the inevitable house that gives out healthy snacks.

And it appears the White House has been a major offender, leaving President Barack Obama nervous.

"Halloween is coming up. [Michelle has] been giving, for the last few years, the kids fruit and raisins in the bag," Obama lamented to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show Tuesday about his wife's Halloween giving.

"Oooh," Leno winced.

"And I said, 'The White House is going to get egged if this keeps up,'" Obama explained. "We need to throw some candy in there. A couple Reese's Pieces or something."

It's not clear whether the First Lady will heed his warning, as she's focusing on getting kids and adults healthier with her "Let's Move" campaign.
