On Thursday, First Lady Michelle Obama visited Manhattan's New Museum where she spoke with a group of eighth grade students. Her topic of course was healthy eating but she also helped to spread the museum's pro-hydration message about drinking more water.

The students partipated in a huge paint-by-numbers project for the show and had the honor of Mrs. Obama signing it.

“You guys are going to make a huge, huge impact on the health of our nation,” she said, noting that plans call for taking the show to museums and galleries in Washington and other cities around the country.

“The fact that you guys can be involved in something this huge and exhibit this kind of creativity all over the country is like a once-in-a-lifetime thing, so you should feel very excited,” she said, “because I certainly am.”

The First Lady is touring and making appearances to celebrate the fourth year of her anti-childhood-obesity initiative.

Mrs. Obama has made wellness for children and childhood obesity her mission. With her Let's Move program she is dedicated to solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams.
