From “Stay Healthy, Louisiana!” » National “Let’s Move” Initiative and Local Program Gets Kids Moving, Dancing Together

For those of you who don’t know by now, I am a Dancer by trade, as I tell folks.  I have two degrees that have a dance emphasis but came to my food love thing within the past 10 years.   The first reason why my food interest was peaked is because I counseled kids who were not fed healthy meals while working as a Dance Therapist and felt that the foods they were eating affected their mood, and also because when I moved back to Louisiana from living in Chicago, I was a vegetarian and there weren’t many choices in terms of where and what to eat.  I am loving the “Let’s Move” initiative by the First Lady and also the fact that she is promoting healthy eating along with it.  The two go hand in hand.
