I knew early on that my passion is children.
I am an advocate for kids, their well being and happiness.
I think that’s why I really love First Lady (and Hot Mama of 2 girls) Michelle Obama.
Sure she’s intelligent, funny, beautiful, and has great fashion sense. But, she’s also very passionate about the youth.
In February 2010, she helped launch Let’s Move, a campaign to help raise a healthier generation of kids.
In the past 30 years, the childhood obesity rate has tripled. This is mainly because of lifestyle, eating habits, and lack of physical activity.
“The physical and emotional health of an entire generation and the economic health and security of our nation is at stake.”
-First Lady Michelle Obama
Children need 60 minutes of play with moderate to vigorous activity every day to grow up to a healthy weight.
Ms. Obama is taking her Let’s Move campaign throughout the country. She’s advocating for healthier eating choices in schools, educating the kids about a healthy lifestyle, and encouraging them to get up and MOVE!!!
She’s not just just a spokesperson. The First Lady is on her feet with the kids and moving too.
Ms. Obama is reminding kids to be physically active by doing things that get you up and on your feet: gardening, jumping rope, yoga, jumping jacks, and dancing.
And boy, can Chelle cut a rug! You can see her at Alice Dean Middle School in Washington DC rocking out to Beyonce with the kids.
Gotta love a First Lady who does a mean Dougie and Running Man. I can see her and the POTUS doing the Electric Slide all over the Oval Office.
Great job Ms. Obama. Thanks for inspiring this generation to combat obesity!
