Simple Steps to Help Your Family Eat Healthy and Move More

Visit the First Lady’s Let’s Move website and benefit from all of the great tools just released for parents www.LetsMove.gov.

The tools recognize that parents are busy and benefit most from simple steps that include specific examples of what parents can do to help their families eat healthy and move more.  Whats more, the parent links give you direct, on the spot assistance.  If you are looking for a local playground, just type in your address and you will see a map of your community with all the local playgrounds; the same for nature, outdoor events, forests and parks.  Do you wonder how many fruits and veggies your child needs?  There is a place to type in their age, gender and amount of physical activity and it will give you the exact amount.  These are just a few examples of the support Let’s Move provides to parents.   If you are determined or even just a little curious about whether you can help your family eat healthier and move more, then the Let’s Move website is definitely worth exploring.
