2. Press release from First Lady Michelle Obama
The White House
Office of the First Lady
For Immediate Release
February 21, 2013
First Lady Michelle Obama and Big Bird Team Up to Help Get Kids Healthy
New Letís Move! Public Service Announcements Filmed in the White House
Encourage Kids to Eat Healthy and Get Active
Washington, D.C. Ė First Lady Michelle Obama and Sesame Streetís Big Bird teamed up to film two public service announcements encouraging kids to eat healthy and get active. The new PSAs, which can be viewed HERE and HERE, are launched as part of the third anniversary celebration of Letís Move! Ė Mrs. Obamaís initiative to ensure that all our children grow up healthy and reach their full potential.
The new PSAs feature Mrs. Obama and Big Bird in the White House showing kids how easy and delicious it is to eat healthy snacks like fruits and vegetables and demonstrating fun ways to get active like dancing and jumping. Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, will distribute these PSAs to 320 PBS Stations, Sesame Workshopís partner channels as part of their Healthy Habits for Life Initiative. The PSAs are also posted on the Sesame Street and Letís Move! websites.
These PSAs are part of the celebration of Letís Move!ís third anniversary. Next week, the First Lady will kick off a two day nation-wide tour celebrating the anniversary by showcasing progress and announcing new ways the country is coming together around the health of our children.
Mrs. Obama launched Letís Move! on February 9, 2010 to unite the country around our kidsí health and create real support for families to live healthier lives. Since then parents, business leaders, educators, elected officials, military leaders, chefs, physicians, athletes, childcare providers, community and faith leaders, and kids themselves have stepped up to improve the health of our nationís children.
Thanks to these efforts, families now have access to more information to make healthier decisions for their children. Young people now have more opportunities for physical activity in their communities. Food in schools has been dramatically improved. More Americans now have access to healthy, affordable food closer to home. And the national childhood obesity rate has leveled off, and even declined in some cities and states.
