Let's Move! is an initiative that was developed by First Lady Michelle Obama. It is dedicated to try to solve the problem of childhood obesity. Her hope is that children born today will grow up to become healthy adults.
Let's Move! focusses on getting kids on the path to a better future by focussing on healthy living practices. It gives parents information about choosing healthier foods, mandates that healthier foods are served in our schools, improves access to healthy, affordable foods and increases physical activity.
Everybody has an important role in reducing childhood obesity, including parents, caregivers, government officials, schools, health care professionals, faith and community based organizations and private companies. We are all key in ensuring a healthy future for our children. So.., Let's Move!
