Being the most powerful country, doesn't mean we're healthiest.  In America, the obesity rate is the highest. You may remember First Lady Michelle Obama taking the initiative to do something about this. Just one year ago she teamed up with the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation to help fight childhood obesity with her campaign Let's Move!

Many celebrities, from singers, chefs, and talk show hosts, have come together to help spread the message and do something! Beyoncé is one of them! She revamped her Swizz Beatz produced track, “Get Me Bodied,” to fit the cause of the campaign. In the Melina Matsoukas - directed video, Bey breaks a sweat through an instructional how-to on staying fit through dancing.

The Task Force recommendations focus on the five pillars of the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative:

1. Creating a healthy start for children
2. Empowering parents and caregivers
3. Providing healthy food in schools
4. Improving access to healthy, affordable foods
5. Increasing physical activity

"In the end, as First Lady, this isn’t just a policy issue for me. This is a passion. This is my mission. I am determined to work with folks across this country to change the way a generation of kids thinks about food and nutrition."

We hope that the Let's Move! wave hits everyone hard and we exercise ourselves to being a healthier people. Happy watching and happy moving!
