First lady Michelle Obama kicks off the next phase of her initiative to reduce childhood obesity campaign "Let's Move!", at a Slidell elementary school.

Mrs. Obama told students at Brock Elementary on Wednesday that the new phase will focus on improving nutrition and physical fitness.

She highlighted ways to help school cafeterias and vending machines provide healthier foods, and to get students up and moving.

Later today, Mrs. Obama and former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy will visit Woldenberg Park, along with former New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister and former Tampa Bay linebacker Derrick Brooks.

Her visit is the day before the Super Bowl champion Saints host the Minnesota Vikings in the NFL's first game of the regular season.
