Michelle Obama visits Miami to promote fitness

First lady Michelle Obama will make a stop in the Sunshine State on Tuesday to talk about healthy diets for children.

The first lady will propose new rules on a way to limit marketing of unhealthy foods in schools.

The rules would phase out ads for sugary drinks and junk foods around campuses and ensure that other promotions in schools are in line with health standards that apply to school foods.

Obama hopes to see fewer advertisements that market unhealthy foods on school scoreboards, vending machines, cups, posters and menu cards.

The first lady also wants to make sure kids are making healthy choices at home.
               
Tuesday's announcement is part of the first lady's "Let's Move" initiative, which is celebrating its fourth anniversary this week.

The first lady plans to make a stop at a local park in Miami and a recreation center where she will make her announcement.
