The Foundation awarded Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States, on the first edition of the award “in recognition of her active and valuable work in promoting physical activity and healthy eating habits among children”, in order to fight obesity among American children and teenagers through the campaign Let’s Move.
The initiative was launched in 2010 and, according to the Executive Vice President of the Foundation, Francisco Sensat,“It is of great importance since it is likely to be followed by other countries"
