Following the success of last month's joint question, the White House and GOOD are joining forces again to ask: What are your ideas to end childhood obesity within a generation?

As part of the First Lady's Let's Move campaign, President Obama created a Childhood Obesity Task Force back in February. The White House blog reports that the task force is at work on an action plan for solving the problem and is looking for steps that each of us can take to achieve that goal.

Today from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m. EST, the White House will stream a live discussion that you can access here, to share ideas related to empowering parents to help make healthier choices for their kids, improving school food, and promoting increased physical fitness.


1:30 p.m. EST: Opening Session with First Lady Michelle Obama


2:30 p.m. EST: Breakout Sessions:
