Michelle Obama has been a hot topic on CLUTCH as of late, but the FLOTUS is seriously committed to her ‘Let’s Move’ campaign, and overall wellness initiative. Furthering her efforts, Mrs. Obama is in the process of penning “American Grown,” a book inspired by her White House produce garden. Crown Publishers announced the complete title is: “American Grown: How the White House Kitchen Garden Inspires Families, Schools and Communities.”
The First Lady’s book explores the ways in which improving access to healthy and affordable food can influence eating habits – and in turn – improve public health. In step with her fight against childhood obesity and “food deserts,” “American Grown” is a guide to creating a lasting, healthy lifestyle. Sources report that Michelle Obama received no advance for the book, and plans on donating all proceeds to one or more charities to be named at a later date.
The First Lady’s “American Grown: How the White House Kitchen Garden Inspires Families, Schools and Communities,” is scheduled to be published in April.
