Lets Move Marks One Year

First Lady Michelle Obama's fitness initiative continues to grow.

First Lady Michelle Obama hit the road Tuesday to mark the anniversary of her "Let's Move" campaign to reduce childhood obesity.

At an elementary school in Atlanta, she urged students to eat smarter and exercise more.

She then toured the school's vegetable garden.

Earlier on the Today Show Mrs. Obama talked about reducing childhood obesity by changing things like school menus.

"You'll see the quality improve, and also you're gonna see it more focused on nutrition education," she said.

It was her comments, though, on personal life in the white house that grabbed headlines.

The First Lady said her husband kicked his smoking habit a year ago, and denied the president has turned to dye to hide gray hair.

She was also adamant about denying daughters Malia and Sasha access to Facebook.

Mrs. Obama also says she's ready to do whatever is asked to help with her husband's re-election campaign that starts later this year.
