It appears her Let’s Move! program has been effective. It also means, lower medical costs in the future for America. The President and his wife will be remembered for taking on health care costs, uninsured and unhealthy and stopping the declining health of poor America.


New CDC data shows 43 percent drop in obesity rates among children 2 to 5

    kids stopped eating the lunches that Mrs Obama mandated. They were nasty, even by school food standards. I wonder if that had anything to do with it?

    BTW....they have started letting those banned lunches back because kids weren't eating their lunch.

    I am thrilled at the progress we've made over the last few years in obesity rates among our youngest Americans," Obama said in a statement. "Healthier habits are beginning to become the new norm."

    Regardless of why it has decreased and/or who is responsible, it is a good thing.

    "...While the precise reasons for the decline in obesity among 2 to 5 year olds are not clear, many child care centers have started to improve their nutrition and physical activity standards over the past few years. In addition, CDC data show decreases in consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages among youth in recent years. Another possible factor might be the improvement in breastfeeding rates in the United States, which is beneficial to staving off obesity in breastfed children..."

    My wife and daughter worked as Extended Day Teachers at an elementary school (K-5th). According to them, the lunches/snacks sent by parents were the majority of the time lacking in fruits/vegetables and were most often chips/candy/cookies.

    Nobody gets to pick their parents.

    "2 to 5 years olds"....yeah that's the target group of "lets move"......:idiot....Grasping at straws Mister??
    According to the CDC report, older children made no progress, with nearly 18% of kids ages 6 to 11 remaining obese, as well as 20.5% of kids ages 12 to 19. In women over age 60, obesity rates climbed from 31% to 35.4% in the same period, the study shows.

    Obesity "remains at historic highs," says David Ludwig of Boston Children's Hospital, who has warned that today's kids could be the first generation in history to live shorter, less healthy lives than their parents. He described the declining obesity rates among youngsters only as an "encouraging preliminary finding."

    Thomas Robinson, a professor of pediatrics at Stanford University, notes that obesity rates among kids ages 2 to 5 have gone up and down significantly over the past decade. Although the survey included 9,120 people, only 871 were ages 2 to 5 years old. And of those children, only about 70 were obese. So in any given year, a relatively small number of children can have a big impact on obesity rates.

    A major new paper appearing in today's edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association finds that childhood obesity -- age 2 to 5 -- has fallen from 13.9 percent in 2003-04 to 8.4 percent in 2011-12. This age (represented by dark green in the above chart) was the only group to see a significant decline, but it's generating headlines because it raises hopes that these children will remain at healthy weights as they get older. It won't surprise anyone to say that the nation's obesity epidemic poses a major public health problem.

    The new paper, by Centers for Disease Control researcher Cynthia L. Ogden and co-authors, doesn't say why childhood obesity is declining. But the paper and several other studies that it cites suggest a number of theories:

    1. Nutrition assistance such as food stamps and WIC (women, infants and children) may have led to decreases in childhood obesity among low-income Americans as federal standards have changed to promote healthier eating. For example, WIC has revised its funding formula to boost the amount of fruits and vegetables and peanut butter a mother and her child eat. At the time time, WIC has limited the amount of (non-breast) milk that a child drinks, to limit fat intake.

    2. New federal nutritional guidelines have trickled down to state and local programs, such as encouraging increased consumption of water and 100 percent fruit juice, limiting serving sizes, encouraging a single adult not to feed more than one infant at a time, and limiting time in front of the television.

    3. As the value of breastfeeding has been increasingly understood, there’s been a substantial increase in babies drinking breastmilk. One study showed that 70.3 percent of children breastfed in 2000, rising to 74.6 percent in 2008.

    4. Pregnant women have increasingly understood the risks of smoking during pregnancy, with a study showing the percentage of women doing so declining from 13.3 percent in 2000 to 12.3 percent in 2010.

    5. Food companies, under pressure, have limited television advertisements targeting children. Between 2003 and 2007, the daily exposure of a child, age to 2 to 5, to food ads fell by 13.7 percent.

    6. A number of national initiatives have promoted healthy eating among children, such as first lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative and reports from a wide range of groups such as the American Public Health Association and American Academy of Pediatrics

    My Non Government Affiliated study says the opposite.

    On Tuesday, the same day Michelle Obama delivered her "Let's Move" fourth anniversary speech, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) released results on the condition of childhood obesity in America, which includes statistics through 2012, three years into the Let's Move Program.

    JAMA’s conclusion: “Overall, there have been no significant changes in obesity prevalence in youth or adults between 2003-2004 and 2011-2012. Obesity prevalence remains high and thus it is important to continue surveillance.”

    Did you read it?

    There was a significant decrease in obesity among 2- to 5-year-old children (from 13.9% to 8.4%; P = .03) and a significant increase in obesity among women aged 60 years and older (from 31.5% to 38.1%

    since "let's move" is pushed in and by schools, what 2-5 year olds took part in school?




    Part of the lets move program is to improve access to healthy foods.
    Did anyone tell the people of Portland?

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Trader Joe’s grocery-store chain has dropped a plan to open a new store in the heart of the city’s historically African-American neighborhood after activists said the development would price black residents out of the area.


    Local community leaders and activists said on Feb. 3 that opening a Trader Joe’s in the historically Black neighborhood would “increase the desirability of the neighborhood for non-oppressed populations” and risk gentrifying the neighborhood.

    You are all pathetic. Really. Each of you one sided, single-minded children are much to blame for where we are at as a country now. All the same names constantly showing up to argue with each other...never convincing the other side, never interesed in anything more than irritating the other Absolutely no give; no ability to look for the good in a way of thinking alternative to your own. No ability to admit that perhaps in some cases you may be wrong.

    I have no admiration for the Obamas/Democrats and what many their policies have done to my family, friends and small business owners I speak with. Still, if Mrs Obama's initiative has resulted in a drop for childhood obesity rates, I cheer her on. No man is right all the time, and so no one party is as well. You ALL need to go fishing more.

    Mr jr duped again

    Doesn't she get an A for effort? She, and all FLOTUS', are politicians in their own right. They have a staff of underlings, including schedulers and analysts. So when she or "the" president, whomever he/she may be, says something, they're repeating what their staff has told them.

    Nevertheless, her program is doing something good for Americans, more than likely more than you've ever done.
