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 helped bring healthier nutrition to school lunch rooms around the nation.

And now, a new CDC report shows significant declines in childhood obesity rates among 2-5 year olds.

However, the numbers are still daunting.

The TODAY show reports 1 in 3 kids and teens are obese or overweight.

As for body image at home? Obama says she and her kids don't discuss something that plagues many people. 'We don't talk about weight.'

Obama said her kids are so used to her being silly, they no longer really react to her doing ridiculous things.

That sense of humor shines through in her hilarious Let's Move public service announcement with Will Ferrell.

Another recent victory for Obama? Working closely with the FDA to change nutrition labels
on food products for the first time in 20 years.

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.
