Facing Facts: According to health care provider AtlantiCare, one out of 20 Americans are obese. This trend led to First Lady Michelle Obama launching the Let’s Move campaign in schools across America in February 2010, wanting to change the way Americans think about food. “It’s not the school’s fault kids are obese,” cafeteria worker Beth Stillwell said. “Our one meal a day isn’t life changing, it’s the other meals that add up. Blame on schools needs to be redirected towards encouraging lifestyle changes and new activities.”
