Oh, goody! WH Easter Egg Roll this year to be ‘fat camp’ instead

This year’s White House Easter Egg Roll has been turned into a “fat camp” to inflict exercise and the First Lady’s “Let’s Move!” healthy meal plans on kids who want just want to celebrate the season on the South Lawn.

An e-mail from the “Let’s Move!” campaign says the Easter Egg Roll has been turned into a “Let’s Move! Social”:

“We’re excited to announce that our next White House Social will be a Let’s Move! Social here, at the White House. On Monday, April 1st, 2013, the First Family will host the 135th annual White House Easter Egg Roll with the theme ‘Be Healthy, Be Active, Be You!'”

The First Lady’s “followers” will be there to preach to kids about their eating habits:

“We are inviting Let’s Move! followers on Twitter and Facebook and their children, ages 5 – 13, to join the fun on the South Lawn and of course to share their experience with their followers!”

There will even be a physical activity regime, something called “sports courts,” and cooking demonstrations to “educate families,” the White House Easter Egg Roll web page says:

“In addition to all the fun and games, the day’s activities – which will include sports courts and cooking demonstrations – will help educate families on smart ways to incorporate healthy eating and exercise choices into their daily routines, which are key pillars of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative.”
