First Lady Michelle Obama Praises Anti-Obesity Efforts
First lady Michelle Obama is praising the food industry for efforts to market healthier foods but says more must be done.
Speaking Friday at a childhood obesity summit, Mrs. Obama encouraged the industry to put better labels on food, limit marketing of unhealthy foods and do more to promote healthy foods.
She invoked her pre-White House years as a working mom who would run through the grocery store trying to make healthy decisions for her children.
Reducing childhood obesity is "a moral obligation to our children" and "a patriotic obligation to our country," she said.
