America’s First Lady Michelle Obama graced the cover of Parents magazine and spoke about her new book, American Grown, as well as her Let’s Move! initiative to combat childhood obesity.
“Let's Move! is not about government telling people what to do but about providing the info they need in their own lives,” she says in her interview. “There are small and meaningful changes that parents can make in their lives that will make all the difference: drinking more water, incorporating more fruits and vegetables, using MyPlate (choosemyplate.gov) as a template for figuring out how to structure meals, finding creative ways to get our kids moving, being advocates in schools by paying attention to what's being served and not being afraid to be a voice for the changes we want to see.”
She also spoke about the importance of getting kids involved in sports, including her daughters Sasha and Malia. “I also encourage each girl to try an individual and a team sport,” she said. “We aren't talking about how they look. We are talking about what to do to be a well-rounded person. I encourage my girls to get comfortable being sweaty, being dirty, physically falling down and getting back up and realizing you will be OK.”
