Michelle Obama is telling parents and kids everywhere. Let’s Move! Obama, launched her Let’s Move campaign this month to deal with the growing problem of childhood obesity.

In a meeting with both American and Canadian officials Obama urged the governments to take charge to battle this condition which is effecting one in every three children.

The four solutions she offered to combat the issue are:

1) Educating parents

2) Providing healthier food in schools

3) Promoting physical fitness

4) Making good, affordable meals available in a world where fast food has become the easiest and cheapest choice. Is this a step in the right direction? What else should be done?
