To kick off the celebration of the 4th anniversary of Let’s Move!, First Lady Michelle Obama joined Jimmy Fallon during his first week as host of The Tonight Show. In her appearance, the First Lady discussed how this year, she wants to celebrate all of the great work taking place across the country to move our nation in a healthier direction. Mrs. Obama knows that there is extraordinary work occurring from coast to coast, and she can’t wait to see it!
That’s why the First Lady wants you to show her how you move to be healthy – through making better food choices, being physically active, and making healthy changes in your community – via social media using #LetsMove. Tweet it, Instagram it, Facebook it! And the First Lady said that if enough people show her how they move, we might be in for a little surprise.
What is the surprise? The President and Vice President might just show us how they move too!
Be sure to follow @FLOTUS and @LetsMove on Twitter and @MichelleObama on Instagram for live updates throughout the next week. And don’t forget to show us how you’re moving to be healthy with #LetsMove!
– Show us your healthy meal (at home, school, church, community center, etc.)
– Show us how you’re getting active (with your family, friends, colleagues, etc.)
– Show us big changes in your community (a community garden, new bike path, etc.)
The First Lady joined Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell to show us how they move, and she had fun teaching them that eating healthy and being active isn’t so “Ew!” Check it out:
