I support the Let's Move! initiative and will provide counseling for optimal nutrition and physical activity at all ages. I will measure height and weight for all infants, and will calculate and discuss BMI at well child visits for all children 2 years and older. This is my move to raise a healthier generation of kids and to help solve the problem of childhood obesity within a generation.

Current Pledge Count: 2368
