Our Diva of the week is First Lady Michelle Obama. Amongst her many national and international campaigns, the First Lady has targeted the health of her fellow citizens. In February 2010, she created the ‘Let’s Move’ campaign, as a source of health resource. In a nutshell, “Let’s Move! will give parents the support they need, provide healthier food in schools, help our kids to be more physically active, and make healthy, affordable food available in every part of our country.”(whitehouse.gov) By targeting kids at an earlier age and teaching them to make healthy choices with their lives, it decreases the chances of obesity and health diseases due to a poor diet and lack of exercise.
