Obesity rates are rising, especially in children. The numbers are even higher in Latino and African American children. The Let’s Move campaign launched nationally in 2010, under the direction of First Lady Michelle Obama. The primary focuses are to eat healthy and to be physically active. This movement is not just for children; it is for parents, grandparents, schools, communities and elected officials. Everyone will benefit from a healthy generation of children. More information, including resources and helpful tips for children and adults, can be found at www.letsmove.gov/.

There is also a Let’s Move Pittsburgh program for Southwestern Pennsylvanians based at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. This is modeled after Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative and provides many local resources and opportunities to be healthier.
