"To celebrate the third anniversary of Let's Move, First Lady Michelle Obama went on the road to meet people across the country who are making healthy change happen," noted the video description on the Let's Move! site.
"From a Cafeteria Cook-Off in Mississippi to a grocery store in Missouri, Mrs. Obama saw first hand how companies and communities are coming together to help our kids, and our families, eat healthy and get active. Plus she stopped in her hometown of Chicago for some recess with 6,500 schoolkids and some of America's most talented athletes."
