First lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this Thursday in support of “Let’s Move!,” her campaign to fight childhood obesity in the US. “Let’s Move!” aims to improve the health of children and adolescents by encouraging nutritious food choices, improving the quality of school lunches, and increasing physical activity within families, schools, and communities. A proponent of fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables, Obama will also be in Los Angeles to speak on behalf of the California FreshWorks Fund, a project that aims to bring healthful options and fresh foods to food deserts and underserved communities. This spring, the first lady will be publishing her first book about gardening, titled American Grown: How the White House Kitchen Garden Inspires Families, Schools, and Communities.
