US First Lady continues the war on childhood obesity

Michelle Obama some time ago declared the childhood obesity epidemic her number one personal enemy. Since then, Barack Obama's wife has spoken out many times in favor of introducing additional physical education lessons at school and banning all kinds of "junk" food in children's canteens.

This Tuesday, Michelle unveiled her ambitious new plan to end the epidemic within a generation of children. The plan includes 70 carefully crafted recommendations to bring the total number of children who are overweight to 5% by 2030.

Among these recommendations:

  • proper medical care for expectant mothers
  • breastfeeding support
  • limiting the time children spend watching TV
  • major changes in children's diets to increase he althy food proportions
  • reducing advertising of unhe althy sweets
  • reducing the cost of he althy food
  • measures to increase the physical activity of the younger generation.

However, there is a lot of time until 2030.
