Yesterday, the First Lady was joined by students from across the country to plant the seventh annual White House Kitchen Garden. Mrs. Obama first planted the garden in 2009 to initiate a conversation about the health and wellbeing of our country, which then evolved into the Let’s Move! initiative. This year, as we mark the fifth anniversary of Let’s Move!, we’re celebrating the progress that’s been achieved over the years and challenging ourselves to do even more on behalf of our nation’s kids.

Today marks the 137th annual White House Easter Egg Roll. It’s an exciting day when approximately 35,000 people from across the country come to the White House South Lawn to participate in the event. The theme for this year’s Easter Egg Roll is #GimmeFive. Over the past few months as part of the fifth anniversary of Let’s Move!, the First Lady has been challenging Americans to #GimmeFive things they are doing to eat better, be more active, and lead a healthier life. We have seen families, schools, organizations, and even celebrities and professional athletes get involved in the challenge, and we can’t wait to see everyone at the Easter Egg Roll join in too!

Also, a great benefit is that now the website can be viewed on mobile devices and tablets!
