Today the First Lady is traveling to Jackson, Mississippi for the recently launched Let’s Move! Campaign – an initiative to end childhood obesity with a focus on promoting healthy eating, nutrition education and physical activity in schools. In February, the President signed a Memorandum establishing a task force to address the issue and last month Mrs. Obama visited Philadelphia to take on food deserts. In Mississippi she’ll visit a couple of local schools and check out a trail that’s part of the state-wide initiative Let’s Go Walkin’ Mississippi to encourage physical exercise. We’ll be following the First Lady every step of the way and sending updates throughout the day on Facebook.
