Obamas Turn Easter Egg Roll Into Birthday Party for First Lady’s ‘Let’s Move!’ Campaign

Children attending Monday’s annual White House Easter Egg Roll also found themselves part of an impromptu birthday celebration for first lady Michelle Obama’s signature “Let’s Move!” initiative.

The effort, which celebrated its fifth anniversary Monday, promotes exercise and healthy eating. Mrs. Obama also has used to the initiative to push controversial school-lunch standards in districts across the country.

Before children began hunting for Easter eggs on the White House lawn Monday, the president asked them to join in and wish “Let’s Move!” a happy birthday.
