During Tuesday morning’s edition of ABC’sGood Morning America, First LadyMichelle Obama sat down with Robin Roberts for an interview that touched upon her new book American Grown, her “Let’s Move!” anti-childhood obesity campaign, Beyonce, and gardening in an urban environment.
Roberts started out by asking Obama about the critics of her “Let’s Move!” campaign who believe it’s “all part of big government.” The First Lady responded that:
…This isn’t about government telling people what to do. What we know we need to do is give parents, community, families the tools and information they need to make choices that are right for them and there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. … “Let’s Move!” is a way of giving people the tools and information and it really requires everybody to step up. We need our mayors stepping up, restructuring cities so that kids have safer places to play. We need our food manufacturers stepping up and really thinking about how to reformulate food products so that they are a little more healthy and affordable. We need big supermeasures to locate grocery stores in underserved communities.
