WASHINGTON, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Michelle Obama plans to spend two days on the road this month, pushing her Let's Move program in Mississippi and Chicago, the White House said Wednesday.
In addition to her two-day tour on Feb. 27 and Feb. 28, Obama will travel to New York this week for appearances on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," "Good Morning America" and the "Dr. Oz Show." Some of the segments will air next week.
Obama launched Let's Move on Feb. 9, 2010, to encourage children to get plenty of exercise and to eat healthy food to cut down on the rate of childhood obesity.
In Mississippi, the state with the highest obesity rate in the United States, Obama plans to visit the Clinton Public School District. In the district, a community effort has been encouraging children to develop healthier habits.
Obama will appear in Chicago with Rachael Ray, the celebrity chef and advocate for healthy children's food, to highlight the Healthy School Lunch program.
