Michelle Obama Says Healthy Habits Start As Early As Toddlerhood Photo: AP Photo / The Bump
Got a kid in day care? First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign is now focusing on your tot. The First Lady recently announced, at a child care facility in DC, a national initiative for child care providers to schedule at least two hours of physical activity for the kids each day and to provide meals with plenty of fruits and veggies -- and no fried foods. Kids should say buh-bye to the TV and video games and hello to fresh air and activity, says the healthy initiative, which encourages less than two hours of screen time a day. It’s also encouraging child care facilities to welcome expressed breast milk and moms who want to drop in during the day to nurse their babies. We’re thrilled that babies and toddlers are getting the attention -- healthy habits really can start early, can’t they?
