About Chefs & Let's Move!

Let’s Move! is a comprehensive initiative, launched by the First Lady, 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.

One of Let’s Move! initiatives is The Chefs Move to Schools program, which helps chefs partner with interested schools in their communities so together they can create healthy meals that meet the schools’ dietary guidelines and budgets, while teaching young people about nutrition and making balanced and healthy choices.

Chefs can have a tremendous impact on the health and well-being of children by adopting a school and working with teachers, parents, school nutrition professionals and administrators to help educate kids about food and nutrition. By creating healthy dishes that are also delicious, chefs have a unique ability to make good nutrition fun and appealing.
