DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Special honors will be extended to students and faculty members at a school in southeast Dallas on Friday morning. First Lady Michelle Obama is in North Texas for a second day to thank the school for a job well done in the arena of healthy eating.
At a morning event, Mrs. Obama will highlight the healthy eating changes that students in the Dallas Independent School District are making each day, especially at Nancy Moseley Elementary School. The campus is a ‘gold’ school in the Healthier U.S. School Challenge program.
The DISD has more ‘gold’ schools than any other district in the nation.
There will also be a competition at the Dallas elementary school on Friday, including stars from the reality cooking show “Top Chef” battling to see what meals they can dish out for students. Some of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders will also be there.
Mrs. Obama received a warm welcome to the DFW area at an Olive Garden restaurant in north Fort Worth on Thursday night. She was there to meet with eight parents, to discuss how they have been able to get their children to eat more fruits and vegetables.
Jenny Hogan and her three kids from Frisco met Mrs. Obama on Thursday and 9-year-old Amanda Hogan even got the First Lady’s autograph on a folder. “It’s something special I should keep,” the little girl said.
“We were discussing about how fun it is to get all the kids out together, riding their bikes and running,” said Jenny Hogan. “And when you do it together as a group, you share the excitement.”
