Sasha Obama Chats Up Ryan Reynolds at a State Dinner:

Last month, Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe and his wife, First Lady Akie Abe, came to DC for a state visit with the Obamas.

While the President and Prime Minister were meeting, the First Lady spent time with the Prime Minister’s wife, First Lady Akie Abe, at Great Falls Elementary School in Great Falls, Virginia. There, the two First Ladies spoke with a group of students who are learning Japanese and studying Japanese culture. Great Falls Elementary has a Japanese immersion program in which many students learn several of their subjects in Japanese.

My wish for all of you and for young people across America is that you have the chance to engage with kids from other parts of the world, that you learn about each other’s lives, that you understand one another’s hopes and dreams so that you can truly see for yourselves firsthand just how much we all have in common around the world.

This week First Lady Michelle Obama announced proposed guidelines for local school wellness policies and roll out of breakfast and lunch programs for schools that serve low-income communities.

And I must say, the First Lady has really been on a roll lately with her fashion. I mean, she usually looks good, but she's been on a different level. This silver and cream sleeveless dress is just striking, and her green cap-sleeve with ruffles is just delightful.

The bipartisan Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 mandated that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) set guidelines for what needed to be included in local school wellness policies in areas such as setting goals for nutrition education and physical activity, informing parents about content of the policy and implementation, and periodically assessing progress and sharing updates as appropriate.

The proposed guidelines would ensure that foods and beverages marketed to children in schools are consistent with the recently released Smart Snacks in School standards and ensuring that unhealthy food is not marketed to children is one of the First Lady's top priorities. To help schools with the implementation of the school wellness policies, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has launched a new "School Nutrition Environment and Wellness Resources" website, which includes sample wellness policy language for school districts and a dedicated page of resources for food marketing practices on the school campus.

As America's chief spokesperson for healthy living, First Lady Michelle Obama announced that the FDA is proposing updates to its requirements for nutrition labels to better reflect the facts consumers need to make informed choices. I'd like to note that she picked a stunning green dress for the occasion.

Our guiding principle here is very simple: that you as a parent and a consumer should be able to walk into a grocery store, pick an item off the shelf, and tell whether it’s good for your family.... So this is a huge deal, and it’s going to make a big difference for families across this country.
