Continuing to fight an obesity crisis here in the U.S, our First Lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama, decided to use her influential position to help create and promote a program that could potentially take a massive step in the right direction for controlling the childhood obesity epidemic. The “Let’s Move” programhttp://www.letsmove.gov/ has the First Lady, pop stars, large corporations, healthcare providers, and most importantly, schools all supporting the cause. Let’s Move encourages a healthier diet in and out of school, better food labeling, and increased daily physical activity for children. “Military leaders … tell us that when more than one in four young people are unqualified for military service because of their weight,” the first lady says in the prepared remarks, “childhood obesity isn’t just a public health threat, it’s not just an economic threat, it’s a national security threat as well.” ~Michelle Obama
