First Lady Michelle Obama sits down with NBC to discuss 'Let's Move!'

Michelle Obama Says Let's Move! Campaign Implementing Change

For the 'TODAY' show's final 'Love Your Selfie' segment, First Lady Michelle Obama sat down
with NBC correspondent Jenna Bush Hager to discuss the success of her Let's Move! campaign, which aims to fight childhood obesity.

Since its launch in 2010, the program has aimed to help bring healthier nutrition to school lunch rooms around the nation.

Now, a recent CDC report suggests the initiative may be working, as the US has allegedly seen significant declines in childhood obesity rates among 2 to 5-year-olds.

Michelle tells NBC anchors that her attitude towards body image is ever-present at home, saying she and her two daughters don't discuss something that plagues many people. 'We don't talk about weight,' she says, and adds that she and her daughters much prefer to just be 'ridiculous' and 'silly,' a sense of humor that shines through in her recent 'Let's Move!' PSA with Will Ferrel.

Another recent victory for Michelle? Working closely with the FDA to change nutrition labels
on food products for the first time in 20 years, which she announced Thursday.

CNN reports the new labels will emphasize calories, which will have a larger overall presence on the label. A new category of added sugars will also be included.

Michelle - just pack your bags and really treat the American public to a Lets Move grand moment.
You and your despicable husband can move out now...
We have no use for your husband - a man who has stolen health care from many,
is a tyrannical dictator, and has no heart for the American people.
