First Family does not talk about weight, Michelle Obama says
In an interview with Jenna Bush Hager, the First Lady said her Lets Move campaign isnt about how kids look. Its about how kids feel.
Obamas recent push on Lets Move coincides with the FDAs recent recommendation to change the nutritional labels on foods to reflect more accurate proportions and added sugar. Obama, who has worked closely with the FDA on the new labels, said she is thrilled by the proposal.
Meanwhile, a government study released Tuesday found a sharp decrease in toddler obesity in the past decade. One of the studys authors, Cynthia Ogden, said the study provided a glimmer of hope.
Sometimes, if you get up and dance and you're silly, maybe your kids get up and dance and they're silly and they let the guard down, Obama said on Today. You do that for 30 minutes and before you know it, you've exercised and nobody's the wiser.
Obama said her daughters werent too horrified by her appearance on Jimmy Fallon. I think that theyre used to me doing really silly things to get people engaged and laughing.
Bush Hager bonded with Obama about raising two teenagers in the White House. Youre raising two teenage girls in the spotlight -- I speak from experience, Bush Hager said, and Obama agreed.
