President Obama signed an executive order last week that gives The First Lady authorization to move forward with her new “Let’s Move” Child Obesity Campaign.
The purpose? To solve the epidemic of childhood obesity within a generation.
Here are the objectives:
- Give parents the support they need.
- Provide healthier food in schools.
- Help the nation’s kids to be more physically active.
- Make healthy, affordable food available in every part of our country.
The First Lady was also interviewed about the campaign recently on “Good Morning America.”
I give a standing ovation to Michelle Obama, for addressing the root cause of the obesity issues with kids–not to mention her leading by example to raise produce at home.
