WASHINGTON (AP) - A White House official says Michelle Obama
will announce details of a plan to put 6,000 salad bars in public
school lunchrooms within the next three years.

Mrs. Obama was expected to make the announcement Monday at
Riverside Elementary School in Miami.

The National Fruit and Vegetable Alliance, United Fresh Produce Association Foundation and Food, Family, Farming (F3) Foundation
are joining to support Mrs. Obama's campaign against childhood
obesity.

The first lady has made boosting fruit and vegetable consumption
a major goal of her effort to get people to eat better. Riverside
Elementary recently opened a salad bar.

The White House official spoke on condition of anonymity to speak ahead of the announcement.
