Uh oh. This doesn’t look good.
First Lady Michelle Obama is set to make a bunch of announcements as she celebrates the fourth anniversary of the Let’s Move program.
Here’s her schedule, followed by the latest peppy video. I’d love Let’s Move if it were a rah rah program that didn’t try to insert government into your cookie jar. Kids are definitely too fat.
But of course, this wouldn’t be an Obama-driven project without the government in the back seat along for the ride.
BTW, where are all the thought police with regard to Let’s Move? You know, Fat is beautiful; There’s too much emphasis on body image, and so forth? Michelle gets a pass.

Washington, DC * 11:00 AM ET—The First Lady will make an announcement regarding proposals to help parents and other consumers make healthier choices.
Later that afternoon, the First Lady will travel to Bowie, Maryland for an announcement with a local child care facility. Since 2011, nearly 12,000 child care providers have committed to providing healthy environments and encouraging healthy habits among our nation’s preschoolers through Let’s Move! Child Care. These child care providers are increasing physical activity, limiting screen time, serving healthier food and beverages, and supporting breastfeeding mothers.
Following her event at a local child care facility, the First Lady will join Jenna Bush Hager for an interview with the Today Show. This interview will air the following day.
Let’s hope none of these announcements involve inducing starvation in schoolchildren.
