Michelle Tackles Health in Her Own Way

Health seems to be on the minds of the Obamas lately. Mrs. O herself tackles her platform of childhood obesity in this week's Newsweek magazine. The issue includes an article written by the first lady herself. "Michelle on a Mission" provides some insight into the first lady's "Let's Move" initiative. The initiative's mission can be summed as as follows:

"Let's Move is about families making manageable changes that fit with their schedules, their budgets, and their needs and tastes. It's about giving parents the tools they need to keep their families healthy and fit, and getting more nutritious food—more fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and less sugar, fat, and salt—into our nation's schools. It's about helping grocery stores serve communities that don't have access to fresh foods, and finding new ways to help our kids stay physically active in school and at home."

Also, here are some great pics of the Obamas dancing at the recent White House Governors Ball. They are too cute.
