A campaign was organised for obesity by Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama used a stop- off at a Community Farm in San Diego this week to promote her campaign against childhood obesity, calling for parents and children to make healthier choices when it comes to food.

The first lady chose the community farm as a model of how communities could work together to ensure that even the poorest in society have access to healthy foods. The farm operates a policy that if people on food stamps use them to buy their groceries, they will receive an extra $5 to spend.

Obama said, “Healthy children come from a place, a place that is a healthy community.

If a family lives in a neighbourhood with a grocery store nearby, it is simple, they are more likely to out fresh fruits and vegetables on the table because they will have access to it.”

She used the stop-off to announce the launch of a partnership between the California Endowment’s Building Healthy Communities Initiative and her own “Lets Move!” campaign, which focuses on encouraging healthy living and helping the obese devise a sensible weight loss plan.

Califoria Endowment has started a campaign to target 14 low-income communities in the state. $100 million will be spent to improve infrastructure, school lunch programs and develop community gardens. Robert Ross, president of the program, said that research has showed where someone lives has a significant impact on their health.

Referring to two Californian communities, one low income and one high, he said, “If you live in City Heights I can tell you that you will probably live 12 to 14 years a shorter lifespan than someone from La Jolla.”

Obesity is proving a serious headache for American public health authorities. Despite attempts to get the legions of overweight citizens to follow a healthy eating plan and commit to weight loss, large sections of the population remain severely overweight.

The problem has partly been blamed on the proliferation of fast food outlets, partly on poor education and partly on an increasing class divide, which has made those in poorer areas more likely to opt for cheap, processed food. Companies are touting supplements and herbal pills which promise fast weight loss, but there is still a lack of awareness about healthy eating and long-term health.

Michelle Obama is eager to promote a culture where Americans stop looking for fast weight loss, but instead look to long-term changes they can make in their lifestyles, to create an achievable weight loss plan or prevent obesity becoming a problem in the first place.

Obama identified environmental problems as causing children to become overweight, saying that in some areas children feel afraid to walk to school. She praised San Diego as a model community which has made efforts to make neighbourhoods safe places for children to go out and take exercise.
