Isaac Bruce and Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move"
Isaac Bruce and Congressman Lacy Clay brought First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" national campaign to reduce childhood obesity to St. Louis with a fun hour of healthy cooking and fitness on Tuesday, September 28. Students from Cote Brilliante School acted as guest chefs as they joined with Isaac to craft delicious healthy foods under the supervision of Saint Louis University's Fresh Gathering's Program. Isaac then led the students in fitness activities.
President Obama and the Congress of the United States have proclaimed October as "National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month." According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, one in three American children is either overweight or obese. Being overweight at a young age can lead to a lifetime of high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic conditions.
