Let’s Move! Celebrates First Anniversary

First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative against childhood obesity celebrated its first birthday on February 7. All over the US, events to commemorate this anniversary were or are being organized as part of the Let’s Move! Cities and Towns campaign.

The initiative was well received by many organizations including the Girl Scouts of USA.

According to Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius:

“First Lady Michelle Obama and her Let’s Move! campaign seek to put children on the path to a healthy future starting with their earliest months and years by giving parents the information they need to make healthy choices for their families. I am proud to be her partner in this effort. By eating right and getting the right amount of exercise, young girls can be an example to their friends, siblings, and even their parents to live healthier lives. With great partners like the Girl Scouts of the USA and Kraft Foods I know that we can ensure a bright and healthy future for our children.”
