    First Lady Michelle Obama is in Dallas this week as part of her four-state tour marking the two-year anniversary of her “Let’s Move” initiative, aimed at stemming the tide of childhood obesity in the US--and she’s getting some help from the Cowboys.

    A group of Cowboys, including All-Pro linebacker DeMarcus Ware, running back DeMarco Murray,  receiver Miles Austin, and running back Felix Jones, joined Mrs. Obama and a group of chefs from Bravo’s “Top Chef” to participate in an the program that challenges schools to provide healthier lunches to students.

    The Cowboys, chefs and kids on hand split into three teams, with the goal of creating the best lunch in 30 minutes.  The contest will be decided by “Top Chef” judge Tom Colicchio, and will be shown as part of a future episode.

    Ware Tweeted (and has been tweeting for much of the day) about his involvement with the Dallas event, and the “Let’s Move” initiative: “On my way to join First Lady Michelle Obama and past seasons of Bravo’s hit series ‘Top Chef’ to highlight the work being done in schools across America to provide healthier food to students.”
