Double Header: San Francisco Giants Visit White House and Talk Healthy Living

This shouldn’t be something out of left field: health matters. Especially if you’re trying to win a World Series! Visiting the White House yesterday to celebrate their 2012 World Series victory, athletes from the San Francisco Giants shared their insights with Let’s Move! about why eating healthy and staying active are important habits to cultivate at a young age. The players emphasized that helping kids develop a healthy lifestyle is key to their future success, whether on or off the field.

Step up to the plate and watch what the Giants had to say on the importance of staying active below:

In addition to sharing their wisdom about staying active, we were pretty impressed to hear about their initiatives to make sure their fans have healthy options to choose from at home games. Here's what President Obama had to share about their new stadium garden:

“I’m proud to announce that next season they’re planning to turn the centerfield bleachers at AT&T Park into what’s believed to be the first ever edible garden in a major American sports facility. With rows of kale and strawberries and eggplant, the Giants are going to help encourage local youth to eat healthy -- even at the ballpark.”
