Let's Move Action Plan

First Lady Michelle Obama heads the Childhood Obesity Task Force with a "goal to solve the problem of childhood obesity within a generation." Today the task force released their action plan.

According to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood in his blog entry DOT, First Lady & Childhood Obesity Task Force share important goal: Let's Move!
Here at DOT we support the First Lady's efforts wholeheartedly, and we're particularly interested in the report's Chapter V: Increasing Physical Activity, which includes a section on "The Built Environment."

We know that our "all-digital-all-the-time world" doesn't always encourage us to live the healthiest lives we can. That's why we're working hard to make it easier for Americans to walk or bike safely in their communities. And when kids see that more adults are choosing to walk or bike, they are more likely to exercise healthier transportation options.

And walking and biking aren't just good for our health; they're good for our environment, and they're ways of getting around that Americans have said they want.
