Speaking at the White House and surrounded by children, first lady Michelle Obama introduced a national effort to combat childhood obesity.
"This isn't about inches or pounds, it's about how our kids feel," she said. "There are more and more kids with type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure today than ever before. Things we used to see only in adults."
"About one-third of our children are overweight or obese. None of us want that for our country," she said. "It's time to get moving."
Called the Let's Move
campaign, the program focuses on what families, communities and the public and private sectors can do to help fight childhood obesity, which she and health experts have termed an epidemic in the United States. The campaign aims to take steps to reduce childhood obesity within a generation.
