In February 2010, First Lady Michelle Obama introduced âLetâs Moveâ incorporating the HealthierUS School Challenge into her campaign to promote a healthier generation of children. The HealthierUS School Challenge recognizes elementary, middle and high schools nationwide that create healthier school environments by providing exceptional nutrition education, nutritious food and beverage choices, physical education and opportunities for physical activity. Since the beginning of the HealthierUS School Challenge in 2004, awards have been given to schools in 44 states. As of September 28, 2011, there are 1631 schools certified.
