Let’s Move — Surprise Video from the White House

Hi everyone,

To mark the fourth anniversary of the launch of Let’s Move!, I asked you to show me how you move.

I wanted to see all of the fun, creative things you’re doing in your homes, schools, and communities to get kids excited about eating healthy and being active.

And I said that if we got enough responses, we’d have a little surprise — the President, and maybe the Vice President, would show everyone how they move.

Well, let’s just say you stepped up in a big way — which means it’s time to hold up my end of the bargain.

I’m so proud of Barack and Joe. But more importantly, I’m so proud of all of you.

Across the country, you’ve shared videos on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, and other networks with the hashtag #LetsMove. You’ve shown how you work out, how you’re making better food choices, and how you’re moving your communities toward a healthier future.

It’s been really inspiring to see.

And if we all keep moving forward like this, then I am confident we can give all our children the bright, healthy futures they so richly deserve.

Thanks so much for everything you’re doing.

First Lady Michelle Obama

P.S. — Yesterday, we announced that for the first time in two decades, we’ll be updating the labels on our food so that we can provide families with better information about the products they buy and eat. Check out what this will mean for you.
