Let’s Move!

As part of a series of events to celebrate the fourth anniversary of Let’s Move!, this week First Lady Michelle Obama will make two separate announcements at the White House  in addition to traveling to cities along the east coast to participate in scheduled events. On Tuesday, February 25, the First Lady will be joined by the Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to make an announcement on school wellness and the progress being made in schools. On Thursday, February 27, the First Lady will make a second announcement on proposals to help parents and other consumers make healthier choices. There is speculation that the First Lady and possibly Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Deputy Commissioner for Foods and Veterinary Medicine Michael Taylor will make an announcement about the FDA releasing its proposed rule on the Nutrition Facts Panel.
