The American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD), whose 20,000 members are teaching America's children how to make healthy decisions about eating and physical activity throughout their lives, pledges its support for Mrs. Obama's Let's Move initiative. Since its founding in 1885, AAHPERD has worked to establish healthy school environments that include high quality health and physical education programs as an essential element for our children's physical, academic, and social success. Quality health and physical education programs in our schools are key to developing health literacy and preparing children for lifelong healthy lifestyles.
Let's Move is the very initiative our country needs. Mrs. Obama should be commended for having the foresight to actively address the health of America's children, our country's future leaders. Healthy lifestyles that include physical activity and quality nutrition are essential for healthy souls, healthy minds, and healthy bodies. AAHPERD is ideally positioned to be a leader with the Let's Move plan...our members focus on issues related to childhood obesity on a daily basis and are committed to make Let's Move a success.
