Teaching Our Children Not To Take Candy From Strangers or Enjoy Rides From Elevators
First Lady Michelle Obama is taking her point of raising awareness for childhood obesity home.
On a stop in Newark, New Jersey, Obama played and raced with the kids from Maple Avenue School in hopes of gaining enthusiasm from our nation’s youth towards defeated this childhood epidemic.
The main point our First Lady is hoping to get across is that anyone and everyone has a role in combating obesity, no matter their background, race, or age.
Not only is she talking the talk, Obama is walking the walk...literally. Since their move into the White House over two years ago, the First Family has sworn off the elevator at their home in the White House. It just goes to show you that obesity knows no boundaries, borders, or bipartisanship. Have YOU helped save the world today?
