First lady defends 'Let's Move' exercise campaign
Wednesday - 5/8/2013, 10:45am EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- First lady Michelle Obama says her campaign to improve young people's health is about the government providing information, not "telling people what to do."
Mrs. Obama explained her "Let's Move" initiative in an interview broadcast Wednesday on NBC's "Today" show.
The first lady for the past three years has been pushing a program aimed at improving childhood health and she has been urging the young to develop better eating habits.
Mrs. Obama visited Mississippi earlier this year, taking her anti-childhood obesity campaign on the road.
At an elementary school, she cited new research showing childhood obesity rates among elementary school pupils in the state had declined by 13.3 percent between 2005 and 2011. She said that "what's happening here in Mississippi is really what 'Let's Move' is all about."
