Presidential Memorandum establishing a task force on childhood obesity

The White House is on a mission to get us healthy! Yesterday, First Lady Michelle Obama launched "Let's Move: America's Move to Raise a Healthier Generation of Kids" -- an initiative to combat childhood obesity through healthy eating and exercise.

The President also lent his support to this important effort, establishing a taskforce on childhood obesity. The taskforce is comprised of various officials within the administration and is tasked with developing "a coordinated Federal response while also identifying nongovernmental actions that can be taken to solve the problem of childhood obesity within a generation."
