With statistics showing that this generation of children may be the first to live shorter lives than their parents, Jamie says change must happen now. "I'm here to show America just a little effort can make a massive difference," he says.
Thanks to first lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move Initiative, Jamie says change is already under way—he just wants to lend a hand. "I want to inspire the parents of America to have an opinion for themselves and support me as one to support the first lady," he says.
He also wants to ease the minds of parents whose children consume school cafeteria food. "I think now it's really hard for moms to go out and work and worry about their kids and what they [eat]," he says. "I know that moms and dads of America would be relieved quite a lot to know that half of their nutrition from that beautiful age needs to be safe, and that's my inspiration."
