At Easter Egg Roll, Seed Packet Salad Bars


As part of her Let's Move! campaign, First Lady Michelle Obama has become a big advocate for salad bars in schools. In the Play With Your Food activity section at today's 2011 White House Easter Egg Roll, there were two salad bars on display, but they were loaded with vegetable seed packets, rather than fresh vegetables. Volunteers handed the seed packets out to plenty of takers (above). The Play With Your Food activity area was anchored by Mrs. Obama's Kitchen Garden, and guests couldn't miss the connection between healthier eating and gardening.
