We as health professionals must provide education and show individuals how to maximize their dollars so they can
prepare healthy meals for their families. When First Lady Obama was in office she began to increase the awareness of reducing childhood obesity by encouraging families to plant a garden for fresh fruits and vegetables (Let’s Move, 2016). This is so important because parents, teachers, students, and health professionals have an obligation to reduce childhood obesity in hopes of decreasing the risk of developing chronic illnesses. What were your thoughts on these initiatives? Do we need to implement more programs like this? Please share your thoughts.
