A few months back we traveled to Washington, DC to help judge the “Just for Kids State Dinner” recipe contest.
We thought that was the ultimate in cool … until we were invited to attend — AND SPEAK — at the State Dinner in August! Nothing could get better than that.
And then we were told the biggest news of all… Marshall would be introduce the First Lady herself.
Take a look. It’s Marshall gushing and Mrs. Obama enjoying every minute of it.
The Portion Size Me journey just keeps getting better and better!

The Portion Size Me family had a blast at Taste of Atlanta last week. Marshall was at his best talking to kids and families about simple ways to be healthier.
If we met you there in person, leave us a comment saying hello. If you missed it (or don’t leave near Atlanta), take a look at the videos below to see what Marshall cooked up.
Our next stop is The Ricki Lake Show! We’ll be on Tuesday’s show. Use this link to find out when it plays in your area (click on “Where to

Rather than regale you with tales from the road, here are our thoughts on the first two weeks of travel. Next time you see us, be prepared for the long versions!

Lessons & Traditions: Road Trip Style

Portion Size Me Meets Let’s Move!
The Portion Size Me lifestyle has lead us (the Reid family) on a journey we never expected. And today is no exception.
After some fun in the airport that included a pat down…
We’re in Washington DC to help judge original recipes submitted by kids ages 8-12 to the Just For Kids “State Dinner”!
Let’s Move! teamed up with Epicurious, the Department of Education, and USDA on this project. The end

I observed a wonderful thing while at the Today Show in NYC. The producers, camera crew, sound crew, lighting crew, and hosts moved like clockwork in the surprisingly small studio at Rockefeller Plaza.

Ann Curry, who seems soft and intense on camera, was quite bubbly and danced her way between camera men from set to set. She was relaxed and not stressed by the
