I think its pretty cool how Michelle Obama is using her position as the First Lady to promote healthy living in an effort to combat childhood obesity, which is rapidly becoming a North American epidemic. She started with planting an organic garden at the White House, and uses it to teach kids about nutrition and how important it is to health.
This is the website for the program she started called Let’s Move. She basically calls for healthy eating and physical activity, something thats been stressed by healthcare practitioners for years and which has largely been ignored by much of the population. Pretty cool that she’s getting professional athletes involved for the physical activity part, running camps and workshops for kids. I sincerely hope that she’ll be able to effect some solid change in American lifestyles, and hopefully it’ll spill over into Canada too :)
