First Lady Offers Plan For Reducing Childhood Obesity In One Generation

May 1, 2010: 09:25 PM EST
First Lady Michelle Obama has released an aggressive action plan on childhood obesity that calls for significant action by the federal government, states, schools, food and media companies and parents. The plan asks the federal government, for example, to provide more information on prenatal care and breastfeeding, a more comprehensible food pyramid, and improvements in nutritional choices for federally-supported school lunches. States should require child care providers to be better educated in nutrition. Schools should re-activate and maintain physical education programs, keep an eye on snack foods available to students, and replace cafeteria deep fryers with salad bars. Cities should make it easier for kids to play safely outdoors, fast food restaurants should cut sugar content of meals, and media should set nutrition standards for foods advertised to children.
