Michelle Obama Hula Hoops for Health (VIDEO)
Is it possible for me to love Michelle Obama any more? Apparently so, since the First Lady had a Healthy Kids Fair on the White House South Lawn and worked on those obliques via hula hoop with about 100 parents and kids from nearby elementary schools. Check out the video:
She is the cutest thing ever! She’s pretty good with the hoop, too; she managed to do 142 hulas before the it fell to the ground. The fair included events about cooking healthy meals and getting enough physical activity. Michelle is a big proponent of exercising and eating healthy, which our country desperately needs. “Right now one in three children in this country are overweight or obese,” she said. ”One of our goals was to focus on the importance of educating our kids about healthy eating.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, she often tells stories of her childhood, in which she was only allowed to eat pizza once or twice a year, if she earned good grades. (Yowza…I would die.) Michelle is also a french fry lover, but she won’t let herself have them too often. She’s also setting a good example for other parents with her own daughters, only allowing Sasha and Malia to watch TV on the weekends – and forcing them to find more active things to do.
