School may soon be out for the summer, but First Lady Michelle Obama has a lesson for hundreds of chefs around the country: healthy eating = healthy kids.
That simple equation means a big assignment for celebrity chefs, culinary experts and cooks who are being recruited for the “Chefs Move! to Schools” program, part of “Let’s Move!” – the First Lady’s initiative aimed at fighting childhood obesity within a generation. The adopt-a-school program will pair a cooking expert with a public school in order to teach students about nutrition and healthy eating.
Some familiar faces are helping to kick-off the program this afternoon on the White House South Lawn. POLITICO reports Rachael Ray will be on hand, as well as other Food Network stars including: Cat Cora, Anne Burrell, Aaron Sanchez, Ellie Krieger and Alex Guarnaschell.
Watch the event LIVE at 12:30PM EDT here on WHCInsider.com.
