Stewart woos Education Secretary with an apple and Lunchables

Spellings appeared on "The Daily Show" Tuesday.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Jon Stewart went to great lengths Tuesday night to make Education Secretary Margaret Spellings feel at home when she stopped by "The Daily Show."

Stewart presented Spellings with an apple, and set out a spread of number #2 pencils and a pack of Lunchables with bologna.

"Thank you for coming on the program," Stewart said. "You are the only active member of our government, in terms of the Executive Branch, who is not allergic to me."

Spellings is the first sitting Cabinet level official to be interviewed on Stewart's show that is aired on nightly on Comedy Central.

-- CNN Associate Producer Lauren Kornreich
