The Let’s Help Let’s Move initiative is a missing link to the “Let’s Move” program because it is committed to helping young children form a health belief system and preparing them to accept and establish patterns of healthy nutrition and a healthy lifestyle promoted by schools. The New England Journal of Medicine confirms this.The article ‘Let's Move — Childhood Obesity Prevention from Pregnancy and Infancy Onward’ states that “To be a truly comprehensive and successful program, then the Let's Move campaign must stimulate prevention efforts targeting the youngest Americans — those under 2 years of age and preschoolers”

Because average American parents are not seriously concerned with America’s growing rates of obesity and consider obesity to be a low-valence issue, they may not support obesity-targeted policies. Let’s Help Let’s Move is dedicated to helping parents understand and develop other attitudinal frameworks by promoting free sources of health-oriented edutainment for young children and urging parents to become consciously involved in health education.


Nationwide Anti-Obesity Programs Need Help

The “LET’S MOVE” program and other government programs like the “Let’s move salad bars to schools” program and the “Let’s move active schools” program are aimed at serving healthier meals to children and increasing physical activity in children who are in school. Unfortunately, these initiatives are not getting expected results and are failing to address broader issues and accomplish far-reaching changes.

America’s health crisis is a signal for some real action because of the following reasons:

  • The proportion of obese or overweight children in the United States has nearly tripled in the past thirty years
  • While there are indications that the obesity epidemic is plateauing, it hasn’t started to recede yet, and rates remain high in the United States
  • The obesity epidemic in the United States proves that most parents are not providing a healthy example for their children
  • Chronic health conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, asthma and emotional problems are related to obesity
  • Obesity-related diseases and morbidity are associated with high medical costs

Let's Help Let's Move supports the lifesaving missions of Let's Move camaign, the Partnership for a Healthier America and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity and to empower kids to develop lifelong, healthy habits.
