Let’s Move: Four Years Of Showing How We’re Moving Towards A Healthier Nation

Four years ago, First Lady, Michelle Obama launched a national movement, Let’s Move!, to create a healthier future for kids and families. Four years later, Let’s Move! has moved a nation in a healthier direction, and this nation is on the move. This healthier movement is the new norm, and it is happening all over the country. From child care centers through high school and after school, from sun up to sun down, the country is moving faster every day towards a healthier future. Over the last four years, Let’s Move! has worked to create more opportunities for physical activity and to improve the overall quality of school meals. Across the nation, communities have gained access to healthy and affordable food, and families have gained the information needed to make more nutritional choices.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found obesity rates among low-income preschoolers declined, from 2008 through 2011, in 19 of 43 states and territories studied. The First Lady – in collaboration with the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) – launched the Drink Up campaign, an unprecedented collaboration of companies coming together to encourage Americans across the country to drink more water. It’s a simple message that everyone can do to stay energized, focused, and refreshed.

In 2010, the Partnership for a Healthier America and First Lady Michelle Obama announced a commitment with 16 companies in the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation (HWCF) pledging to take action to reduce 1 trillion product calories by 2012 and 1.5 trillion product calories by 2015. Last month, it was announced that these food and beverage companies sold 6.4 trillion fewer calories in the United States in 2012 than they did in 2007, thus exceeding the HWCF’s 2015 goal by more than 400 percent, and this translates into a reduction of 78 calories per person in the United States per day. USDA implemented new school lunch and breakfast standards starting in the 2012-2013 academic year and implementation of the new Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards will start in the 2014-2015 school year. These standards mean the quality of food sold in school vending machines and a la carte lines will change significantly.

Michelle Obama: A Woman Of Character

Vogue: Michelle Obama: A Woman Of Substance

The most important thing Obama has done for women in terms of fashion is give them a sense of liberation to explore and experiment. Even when she is doing a sack race in the White House with Jimmy Fallon, her exercise clothes are original. “First Lady Michelle Obama has freed America from the old rules of style, from the idea that fashion has to be exclusive, that there’s one right way to dress and one group of arbiters to set the standard. She projects a new kind of glamour that is relaxed, fun, and deeply democratic,” says author Gioia Diliberto. “In subtle but fundamental ways, Michelle has transformed how we dress.

“I have always said I design for the thinking man’s sex symbol, and she defines it in every way,” says Prabal Gurung. “Every time she wears something of mine, it has given my seamstresses and tailors, my factories here in the Garment District a new zeal. They have felt a sense of pride, a renewed sense of purpose and hope. More important, what she has done is give millions of people back home in Nepal and around the world a message, a hope that with perseverance, hard work, and integrity, the dream that came true for me could also be theirs.”

She is never out of fashion for a simple reason that has nothing to do with the runway seasons: “Everyone talks about Michelle Obama’s sense of style and the firmness of her arms. It is true she loves clothes and looks amazing, and I love to see her wear vibrant colors and interesting bias cuts and show her fit and strong body,” says von Furstenberg. “But what comes across is her incredible intelligence, her caring being, her true substance. That fabric is indestructible and very colorful. It is called character.”

A Beautiful Poem By VC

As the sun prepares to rise this August 13th day, TODobots all gather with words to say. Our bright mayorial light celebrates another year. Undimmed, resplendent, undaunted by fear. Faced with political lies, hate and hypocrisy Mayor Chips highlights them for all to see. As the sun rises on this very special birthday, TODobots all gather with words to say ‘Chips you are special.  Chips you are dear; Not expensive, not costly, just a cherished dear. Chips you are special.  Chips you are rare. Rarer than mankinis, Benghazigates and …GOP fear.’

As TODobots gather for this special day’s unfurling Some are eager to share the mem’ries they’re a-holding:- – Chips’ pictures are delightful! Remember the ‘potties’ That earned acclaim from gracious celebrities? -Charmingly, eagerly seeking a virtual mate Our Mayor cajoles in dresses first rate. -Sprinkling marriage proposals aloft like confetti She lures Japa, Bobfr,…. plus others I’ve forgotten. ‘Chips you are special.  Chips you are dear. Not expensive, not costly, just a precious dear. Chips you are special.  Chips you are rare. Stronger than mankinis,  Benghazigates and …GOP fear.’

Mayor Chips built TODdy-town by the sweat of her brow; Razing the trolls as she patrolled the town alone …  till now. Then reflecting, reassessing, Mayor Chips picked helpers, Thus teaching and taunting and nurturing great bloggers. Next the Mayor decided to cede some space; so  Utal Climbed up – a scouting-pics, zapping-trolls kind of pal. Behold, the sun rises on this long-awaited birthday, And TODobots are here with words to say:- ‘Chips you are special.  Chips you are rare. More loved than mankinis, Benghazigates and … GOP fear. Chips you are special.  Chips you are dear. Not expensive. Not costly, … just endearingly dear!’

                                   ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ A VERY, VERY HAPPY ‘21st again’, Mayor Chips! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥♥ ♥

Hey Chiparoo, UT here. How much do I think you’re a bundle of loveliness? So much that I willingly put up a picture of Wayne Rooney for you to stare at in delight all day. You, my friend, deserve all the happiness and joy in the world. Thank you for TOD. Thank you for creating a community of pretty darn awesome people. Thank you for never closing up shop even when you were constantly hit with a barrage of crap. Thank you for your humor, thank you for your dignity, and most of all, thank you for being a Manchester United fan because our football interactions have brought many a smile to my face.

From TODers to you: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!
