London, Oct 22 (ANI): Michelle Obama showed off her hula-hoop skills before school goers as she spun the ring around her waist for 142 revolutions at the White House fair hosted by her to promote children's health.
The Telegraph quoted her as saying at the Healthy Kids Fair: "One of our goals was to focus on the importance of educating our kids about healthy eating...So it wasn't just about planting a garden."
Pointing out that one out of every three American children is overweight, she called upon parents to improve the diets of their children.
Mrs Obama also asked parents to drop desserts and junk food out of their daily menus and encourage their children to exercise.
And showing her audience what it meant to be the First Lady, she kept hula-hoop going for a cool aloft for 142 revolutions.
Her talent had been revealed by US President Barack last year when he had told the People mag that Michelle was "the best hula-hooper I know. Once she gets the rhythm going, she can drop to her knees!" (ANI)
