WASHINGTON– First Lady Michelle Obama hits New York and Atlanta on Wednesday to whip up media attention on the first anniversary of her signature “Let’s Move” campaign against childhood obesity.

Mrs. Obama, talking to NBC’s Matt Lauer on the “Today Show” on Wednesday was asked questions she covered quite well with ten print reporters on Tuesday, including on President Obama quitting smoking and defending her Super Bowl high calorie menu by explaining–again–that the point is to find balance between a little junk food and a lot of healthier stuff–fruits, vegetables, water, smaller portions and less sugar and salt.

On “Today,” Mrs. Obama said, in reply to a question that Obama does not dye his hair and that she did not want daughters Sasha and Malia on Facebook.
