First Lady Michelle Obama to Appear on "The Dr. Oz Show" In Support of her Let's Move! Initiative

First Lady to Talk About Improvements to Federal Guidelines for School Lunches & Presidential Youth Fitness Program

Episode to Broadcast Friday, Sept. 14, as Part of Season Four Launch Week

NEW YORK, Aug. 23, 2012 -- "The Dr. Oz Show" will welcome First Lady Michelle Obama, whose advocacy for child nutrition and health have been a cornerstone of her work while in the White House, to discuss two new issues that are part of her Let's Move! Initiative - improvements to the federal guidelines for school lunches that go into effect this school year and updates to the Presidential Youth Fitness Program. The nationally syndicated, two-time Daytime Emmy(R) Award-winning "The Dr. Oz Show" will tape the show on Aug. 29 in New York City, to be broadcast nationally Sept.14.

As part of the appearance on "The Dr. Oz Show," Mrs. Obama will talk about how the changes to the school lunch program will help kids become healthier. The new federal nutrition guidelines for school lunches include more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and low-fat milk dairy products. In addition, the First Lady will reveal improvements to the Presidential Youth Fitness Program.

"Mrs. Obama works tirelessly to focus our nation on prevention and educate youth about the critical need to eat right and stay active. This message of prevention will imprint good habits on a generation of young people and result in longer lives and less disease. I am humbled and honored that the First Lady will appear on our show to ignite this conversation with my audience," said host Mehmet Oz, M.D.

The First Lady and the White House are highlighting recent improvements to child nutrition and physical activity to coincide with the back-to-school season when children's health is at the top of minds for many Americans. Her appearance on "The Dr. Oz Show" will air as part of the launch week of the top-rate daytime talk show's fourth season, which begins Sept. 10.
