USDA Teams up with Horton’s Kids to Fight Childhood Obesity

Cross-posted from the Let’s Move! blog.

In the ongoing fight against childhood obesity, First Lady Michelle Obama started the Let’s Move! campaign to help children be more physically fit and conscious of the food they eat. To help promote this initiative, employees from USDA and other federal agencies recently teamed up with the local non-profit Horton’s Kids, an organization recognized for its programs aiming to improve the lives of Washington D.C. kids.

Together, USDA and Horton’s Kids planned a Let’s Move! Meetup that included a day of fun and games designed to engage the participating kids in physical activity and promote physical fitness. See the results for yourself!
