Earlier this month, First Lady Michelle Obama announced what she called a "very ambitious" program  called  "Let's Move" to end the American plague of childhood obesity in a single generation.

The nationwide campaign includes what Mrs. Obama calls four key pillars: getting parents more informed about nutrition and exercise, improving the quality of food in school, making healthy foods more affordable and accessible for families, and focusing more on physical education.

Dr. Kimberlee McKay with Avera McKennan talks about the initiative from medical standpoint.
