First Lady Michelle OBAMA and the fight ahainst childhood obesity:
Michelle OBAMA's "Let's Move" campaign - with its emphasis on improving the quality of food and beverage in the schools and the community - is a welcome and historic step. Better Choices in schools will ultimately have limited effects if children do not have the ability to make better choices in the outside-school world.
IFHE members may be interested to know that huge amounts of federal dollars are going to obesity research through the U.S. Department of Agriculture
