First lady Michelle Obama says Americans need to change their eating habits to avoid producing the nation's first generation of children who live shorter lives than their parents.

Obama spoke Monday at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's national convention in Kansas City.

She charmed the standing-room-only audience at Bartle Hall with quips from her childhood, when she walked to school and ate whatever her mother put in front of her.

Obama touted her "Let's Move" campaign to cut childhood obesity, a problem she says will lead to other illnesses, such as diabetes.
