Description:

Let's Move! is the U.S government website that supports First Lady Michelle Obama's goal to "solve the epidemic of childhood obesity within a generation." The Department of Education, the USDA, and the Department of Health and Human Services have teamed up to tackle the problem, and they have all made significant contributions to the website. Visitors will find that the website is organized into the following sections: "Healthy Choices", "Healthier Schools", "Physical Activity", and "Access to Affordable Healthy Food". Clicking on any section will let visitor learn more about the programs and initiatives of each section, and involve several other government departments and non-profit organizations such as the FDA, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Institute of Medicine. On the right hand menu of most sections, visitors can learn about the research and information known about the problem, as well as how people can help in the communities in which they live. The section on "Access to Affordable Healthy Food" is particularly important for the meals served at home, as it addresses a most basic problem of getting kids and parents to eat healthy items throughout the day.
