    WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama dropped in on lunch and circle time at a Washington child care center on Wednesday, and used the occasion to announce a new national initiative to encourage child care centers to promote healthy eating and exercise habits starting with the littlest Americans.

    The first lady watched as toddlers ate a healthy lunch of fish, fruit and salad greens, did the bunny hop with youngsters in a P.E. class and clapped along with singing time at CentroNia, a bilingual child care center that stresses just the kinds of healthy practices that Mrs. Obama is trying to encourage.

    The first lady said instilling good health habits through child care centers and home-based care can be “a real building block for an entire generation of healthy kids.” She noted that more than half of obese children first become overweight before they reach their second birthday.
