Let’s Move!

First Lady Michelle Obama urges community leaders, teachers, doctors, nurses, moms and dads to join in a nationwide campaign to tackle the challenge of childhood obesity. 

Let’s Move! has an ambitious but important goal: to solve the epidemic of childhood obesity within a generation. The program will give parents the support they need, provide healthier food in schools, help our kids to be more physically active, and make healthy, affordable food available in every part of our country. For example, through the site, parents are provided practical ideas to implement at home such as having a bowl of fresh fruit available to your kids all the time, taking a daily family walk after dinner and working with your child’s school principal to implement new fitness programs. Similarly, there are easy-to-implement ideas for kids and schools to follow. Visit LetsMove.gov for great ideas on helping your children and all those in the community eat healthier and get fit.
