NEWARK - First lady Michelle Obama brought her children's fitness and healthy eating campaign to New Jersey today.

Obama visited Newark to talk with students about how eating better and exercising more can improve their lives.

She was joined at the Maple Avenue School in the city's South Ward by Newark Mayor Cory Booker. Booker is honorary vice chairman of the Partnership for a Healthier America.

The event was part of the first lady's "Let's Move" initiative against childhood obesity. The school was selected because it already has several programs to promote healthy eating, such as growing its own vegetables in classrooms.
