Feb. 14, 2011 - PRLog -- Service Foods, a leading provider of organic and all-natural foods for home delivery, recently joined First Lady Michelle Obama to honor the first anniversary of Let’s Move!, a campaign that is dedicated to solving the problem of obesity within a generation.

Obama, along with Service Foods’ dietitian Dana Yarn, marked the occasion at Alpharetta, Georgia’s North Point Community Church as part of a nationwide celebration to inspire communities, families and schools to take action against childhood obesity. Combining comprehensive strategies with common sense, Let’s Move! is about putting children on the path to a healthy future during their earliest months and years. This includes giving parents information that supports healthy choices; providing healthier foods in schools; ensuring every family has access to healthy, affordable food; and helping children become more physically active.

The pillars of the Let’s Move! campaign follows Service Foods’ (http://www.ServiceFoods.com) and Yarn’s vision to improve America’s health through education, organic and all-natural foods, and expert fitness training. As a registered dietitian, Yarn works one-on-one with Service Foods’ clients to provide personal menu planning while addressing specific health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. Yarn, along with Service Foods’ doctors, registered nurses and certified fitness experts, also provides information on the importance of proper nutrition in Service Foods’ newsletter, video blogs, educational health articles and through various social media platforms.

“We’re proud of Dana and the work she has done to help our clients lead a healthier lifestyle and fight obesity. With Let’s Move!, the First Lady has raised our nation’s awareness about the value of a healthy lifestyle for America’s children, too,” said Dr. Keith Kantor, CEO of Service Foods. “The initiative follows Service Foods’ and Dana’s all-encompassing approach to health, nutrition and exercise. By following these important principles, we can help to end the obesity epidemic and healthcare crisis in America.”
