Join the “Let’s Move” Initiative.

Let’s Move! is a comprehensive initiative, launched by the First Lady, dedicated to solving the problem of obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams.This is an ambitious goal. But with your help, we can do it.

Everyone has a role to play in reducing childhood obesity, including parents, elected officials, schools, health care professionals, faith-based and community-based organizations, and private sector companies. Your involvement is key to ensuring a healthy future for our children.
