Getting kids healthy

America's movement to raise a healthier generation of kids.

With the number of obese children in the United States growing every year, I think anything that can be done to help that problem is a good thing. I came across an article in Newsweek talking about the obesity epidemic in children. It's amazing the statistics, one third of children are overweight or obese. Today's children are expected to live a shorter life than their parents.

Here is a link to the article: The obesity epidemic

Also I found an initiative that Michelle Obama is working on to improve the health of children. She is working on providing healthier food choices for kids, healthier lunch's in schools, increased physical activity, and accessible and affordable healthy food.

Her campaign is called Let's Move
