First Lady Michelle Obama Olive Garden Dinner

First Lady Michelle Obama holds a roundtable dinner discussion at an Olive Garden restaurant in Fort Worth, Texas, Feb. 9, 2012. Mrs. Obama met with the parents to hear their ideas on how Let’s Move! can continue to support families across the country. In September 2011, Darden, the world’s largest full service restaurant company which owns Olive Garden, made a commitment to improve their kids menus by offering a fruit or vegetable and low-fat milk with every meal, as well as reduce total calories and sodium across their menus.

Just over two-years ago, the First Lady launched Let's Move!, a comprehensive initiative dedicated to solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams. Parents play a key role in both making healthy choices for children now and teaching children to make healthy choices for themselves. But in today's busy world, this isn't always easy. So Let's Move! offers parents the tools, support and information they need to make healthier choices while helping develop healthy eating habits in children that will last a lifetime.
