VIDEO: Bees are vital to the world’s food supply.

The kids get up close and personal with the insects, donning beekeeper suits and actually interacting with a buzzing hive. The White House is also working to inform the public about the importance of these pollinators—last year, First Lady Michelle Obama added a pollinator garden and honeybee hive on the South Lawn.
