Last week, as part of Let’s Move!, the First Lady led the Presidential Delegation to the Milan Expo 2015. With the theme “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life,” the Expo is promoting a global dialogue about the future of our food system. The First Lady and the Presidential Delegation were proud to share the successes of Let’s Move! and the efforts happening in the United States to support healthier lifestyles while eagerly learning from other countries’ leaders about how they are addressing the issue of childhood obesity and raising healthier families.

Most people don’t start a long road trip without putting gas in the car. Yet, millions of parents send their children off every morning without ensuring they have had the equivalent of a full tank. We need to do a better job of fueling our children with a nutritious breakfast.
