This week – May 7th thru 9th – the Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) hosts “Weight of the Nation,” a forum acknowledging the progress of policy changes and the role of environmental strategies in obesity control and prevention. Focusing specifically on: early care and education, states, tribes and communities, medical care, schools and workplaces, this Washington-based conversation has sparked national attention. Startling statistics forecast that by 2030 42% of Americans will be obese. First Lady Michelle Obama, Let’s Move! and others work tirelessly to change those odds for America’s youth.

Last week, children of mommy bloggers from across the country packed their backpacks, put on their best, and headed to the White House with pen, paper, and questions in hand, ready for a roundtable with First Lady Michelle Obama marking the 20th anniversary of National Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day.

Ed. Note: This is cross-posted from the White House blog. How do you get kids all around the country to get moving,  jumping, and doing the dougie in unison? Beyonce, natch. On May 3 last year—at 1: 42 p.m. to be exact—nearly 600 schools from coast to coast participated in a flash workout, dancing together to Beyonce’s “Move Your Body.” First Lady Michelle Obama even got in on the fun, joining students at Alice Deal Middle School in Washington, D.C. for their rendition of the “Move Your Body” dance.
