Hang Out with Gail Simmons and White House Chef Cris Comerford

Just over two-years ago, the First Lady launched Let’s Move!, a comprehensive initiative dedicated to solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams. Parents play a key role in both making healthy choices for children now and teaching children to make healthy choices for themselves. But in today’s busy world, this isn’t always easy. So Let’s Move! offers parents the tools, support and information they need to make healthier choices while helping develop healthy eating habits in children that will last a lifetime.
