“Let’s Move”: Against Childhood Obesity

By Pamela Gentry, Senior Political Anaylst

May 11, 2010 – First Lady Michelle Obama stepped up her plan for curbing childhood obesity Tuesday when she released an action plan with more than 70 recommendations to help curb the troubling trend.

The report on “Let’s Move” prepared by a task forced pulled together earlier this year defines the problem and offers  recommendations toward reaching the goal of lowering  obesity rates among young folks to just five percent by 2030. 

If successful that rate would mirror the rate for children prior to the 1970’s when trends began inching upward. 

Here is a summery of the report’s outlined recommendations. 

• Getting children a healthy start on life, with good prenatal care for their parents; support for breastfeeding; adherence to limits on “screen time”; and quality child care settings with nutritious food and ample opportunity for young children to be physically active.

• Empowering parents and caregivers with simpler, more actionable messages about nutritional choices based on the latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans; improved labels on food and menus that provide clear information to help parents make healthy choices for children; reduced marketing of unhealthy products to children; and improved health care services, including BMI measurement for all children.

• Providing healthy food in schools, through improvements in federally-supported school lunches and breakfasts; upgrading the nutritional quality of other foods sold in schools; and improving nutrition education and the overall health of the school environment.

• Improving access to healthy, affordable food, by eliminating “food deserts” in urban and rural America; lowering the relative prices of healthier foods; developing or reformulating food products to be healthier; and reducing the incidence of hunger, which has been linked to obesity.

• Getting children more physically active, through quality physical education, recess, and other opportunities in and after school; addressing aspects of the “built environment” that make it difficult for children to walk or bike safely in their communities; and improving access to safe parks, playgrounds, and indoor and outdoor recreational facilities.

Will you work with children in your family following the above recommendations? 

  • Digg It
  • Delicious


YSL Replica said on May 12th, 2010

The YSL replica will be crafted in much the same way as the original designers crafted their handbags. This is because with that extra special care, the finished replica handbag will take on the same characteristics as the one it was intended to replicate. All of this provides a feeling of authenticity for the consumer, and builds a trust in the brand as well as the store or online marketplace it was purchased at. When all this comes together, it fuels a circle of supply and demand that has the potential to increase profits for retailers and savings for you.

Yves Saint Laurent Sale said on May 13th, 2010

Marc Jacobs talks fashion at the French Institute. He said that I think my greatest hero in fashion will probably always be Yves Saint Laurent, and that’s for a completely different reason: The darkness and the decadence and glamour are more appealing to me on a fashion level. But the world Ralph created is just flawless.” Yves Saint Laurent reinterpreted ’70s Paris for their Fall/Winter 2010 show, with long, waist-length medallions, little capelets, and mid-calf skirts dotting the collection. So a new (sort of) song by LCD Soundsystem, who also performed at yesterday’s show, seems appropriate. According to DFA’s website, they performed a reinterpretation of a 1979 Peter Gordon & Love Of Life Orchestra.

As we continue to grapple with Obesity, a question that is not getting too much attention is the role Alternative systems of medicine like Ayurveda can play in controlling / curing Diabetes. A system based on Nature can not be all that bad :-)

For sake for commemorating Jordan join into Naismith Basketbal Hall of Fame,Jordan brand release the special commemorative edition of Cheap Jordans.
About the color matching, it used 5 different team uniform’s color which against with each other in title dicider.Thoes Cheap Sneakers are: Los Angeles Lakers, Trail Blazers, Suns, Sonics and Jazz ?
This pair of Cheap Sneakers come with extraordinary significance .It can be saw as one important microcosm of Jordan’s career.It also proved to us about how Jordan went beyond the self and compose the legend ?
If you are interested in some specifics about Jordan basketball shoe series, you can visit the following sites: http://www.goodprice4u.com. There sell Cheap Jordans.

If every pair of Jordan Shoes has its own soul,undoubtedly what I most advocate is the Air Jordan XI shoes’s soul.
If every basketball player has its own uniqueness,then in all of the basketball players, Jordan is unique for he’s great.
In my opinion, Jordan Sneakers is the best pairs of shoes which is able to completely correspond to Jordan and show Jordan’s supremeness quite well. Air Jordans has the innate temperament of King .
In the numerous of outstanding basketball athletes,Jordan just like the God enthroned above ; In various kind of excellent basketball shoes, Air Jordan XI is the pearl on the crown.
Jordan Sneakers is the treasure in every collectors’s hearts. Whenever a new Jordan shoes comes out ,people run to buy it.What’s more,at the end of this year, Nike are going to re-launched Sale Jordans, this package is limited edition, not in domestic sales and very extremely noble which including one pair of Air Jordan XI together with one pair of Air Jordan VI . It was the first time Nike bring the color black / gold color into the King family.The entirely honorable color makes this re-retroed Air Jordan XI become a hot topic of “Year’s sneaker”even it haven’t been lunched .I believe many years later, the matching color of the Jordan Sneakers will be a very important position in the whole cheap jordans series.

Cheap Women Boots over . Suddenly ,I am filled with all sorts of feelings . Since sometimes this kinds of thoughts emerge uncontrolledly ,thus it might as well to continue this screen.
It should be 12 years ago, the first time I know that the original Discount Ugg boots also can be purchased at the mall .However it at sky-high price .When I passing by ,just cast envious glances at the Jordan shoes until I have my frist pair of Cheap Women Boots.
At that time I simply treat Cheap Ugg Boots as a baby.After the game, I always cleaning it carefully,wiping every dirt above the shoes like anything .Actually , many years later , When I think about it again , it is just one pair of Discount Ugg. However ,ar that time, it not only a hobby, also not just want to take care of jordan shoes, perhaps, this is our childhood .

Suppose you have everything; a good job, good health, good reputation, good relationships free articles and lot of money to spend. But still there is something articles missing from your life. Guess what? The LOVE. It is not something which you free articles should ignore. Life without love is just like body without soul.

The days of his youth appeared like dreams before him, and he recalled the serious moment when his father free articles placed him at the entrance of the two roads——one leading to a peaceful, sunny place, covered with flowers, fruits articles and resounding with soft, sweet songs; the other free articles leading to a deep, dark cave, which was endless, where poison flowed instead of water and where devils and poisonous free articles snakes hissed and crawled.

Hi..Disasters can leave children feeling frightened, confused, and insecure. Whether a child has personally experienced trauma, has merely seen the event on television, or has heard it discussed by adults, it is important for parents and teachers to be informed and ready to help if reactions to stress begin to occur.
