Michelle Obama to Reveal Her 'Passion' on the 'Today' Show

Be sure to tune in Wednesday morning as first lady Michelle Obama sits down with Matt Lauer on the Today show to talk about the family’s first year in the White House and -- according to the Today Family Blog -- "a new project that she is passionate about."

While we may be passionate about her fashion sense and her chiseled arms, we're pretty sure she'll be tackling a more formidable topic in her chat with Matt: childhood obesity.

It's an issue she's talked about recently and also one that hits close to home. "One third of all children today will eventually suffer from diabetes -- and in the African-American and Latino communities, that number goes up to almost half," she said last week in a speech to the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

We'll have to wait to hear more about her plan, so until then, tell us: What are you doing to keep your kids from packing on the pounds?
