Posted: Wednesday, May 25, 2011
The Menominee Nation
of Wisconsin will launch the Let's Move! in Indian Country campaign today.
The tribe is part of First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move
initiative to combat youth obesity.
The reservation has consistently ranked last in the state for overall health.
"I can attest that there is no better place for this initiative," Chairman Randal Chevalier told The Green Bay Press-Gazette. "Becoming a healthier community starts with our children, so I am delighted that we can address these issues in such a big way."
The tribe will encourage youth to stay active and enjoy healthy foods.
