First lady Michelle Obama is about to go on tour. She's taking her message of healthful eating and daily exercise — her signature Let's Move! campaign — on the road, with planned stops from Mississippi through Missouri to Illinois on Feb. 27 and 28.

The Daily Caller reports that the tour comes as Let's Move! turns 3 years old. The initial campaign launched in February 2010, The Daily Caller reports, as a way of pushing Americans to "live healthier lives," according to a White House description of the program.

In Mississippi next week, Mrs. Obama will appear on television with food guru Rachael Ray, The Daily Caller reports.

"Mrs. Obama and Rachael Ray chose to highlight school lunches in Mississippi, which was rated the most obese state in the nation for several years," the White House said in a statement reported by The Daily Caller.

The costs of the trip weren't included in The Daily Caller report.
