First Lady Links Childhood Obesity to National Security in Launch of ‘Let’s Move’ Campaign

   This reminds me of Barney telling the banks to give mortgages to people who could not afford one.  We have neighborhood stores, children learn what is and is not good to eat.  Not all have the time, space, or desire to plant a sweet potato in their back yards, oh, I forgot, not all have back yards anymore....
Let's overhaul federal laws and spend more money we do not have?  Lets start allowing children to play kickball at recess in school again..........hmmmm

Some of the goals include ending what Obama referred to as “food deserts” with a $400 million a year “Healthy Food Financing Initiative,” which will bring grocery stores to low-income neighborhoods and “help places like convenience stores carry healthier food options.”

Obama called for overhauling many federal laws and guidelines, including adding $10 billion over the next decade to “update” the Childhood Nutrition Act, which feeds 31 million children at school and would add funding to feed more children.
