First Lady In North Texas For ‘Let’s Move’ Initiative

View Comments

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – First Lady Michelle Obama received a warm welcome Thursday night in North Fort Worth.

The First Lady came to an Olive Garden restaurant to meet with eight parents to talk about how they’ve been able to get their children to eat more vegetables and fruits.

Mrs. Obama’s dinner visit marks the second anniversary of her ‘Let’s Move’ Initiative to reduce childhood obesity by getting them to exercise and eat more fruits and vegetables.  Nationwide, nearly one-third of children are overweight.  Nearly one-fifth are obese.

The First Lady held the event at the Olive Garden because their parent company, Darden Restaurants, has started offering healthier choices on its kids’ menus at all of their restaurants.

On Friday morning the First Lady will be meeting with Dallas ISD elementary school students, chefs, and some Dallas Cowboys players to take part in a healthy cooking competition.
