Lil Romeo Named Spokesman of Healthy Eating Tour
Following in his activist father’s footsteps, Romeo “Lil Romeo” Miller has been named the spokesman of the ‘Its Time to Fatten Our Brains Not Our Bodies’ tour, which stops at inner-city schools to talk about health education. Romeo will be joined by his father, P. “Master P” Miller and younger sister, singer Cymphonique, on the trek.
The tour is sponsored by the It’s Time Kids organization, which works to encourage kids to eat well and stay active, in support of First Lady Michelle Obama‘s ‘Let’s Move’ campaign to fight obesity in children.
“This organization’s purpose is to build a society that helps to motivate our young people to aspire for greatness, by being fit and healthy through education, entertainment and music,” Romeo said of It’s Time Kids. “The school tour is committed to educating the community on healthy eating and the benefits of physical activity to reduce obesity, especially childhood obesity.”
P. Miller also weighed in on the subject, saying “With the number of people who are overweight or obese increasing in America, educating the youth and our families on the importance of maintaining healthy eating habits and a physically active lifestyle is crucial in reducing those numbers. This is why my family has decided to make an effort to support First Lady Obama in this fight.”
The Miller family will be joined by Romeo’s group, The College Boyys, Miss Tami, Lil King, Veno and Fabulous Girls. The tour begins on April 23, at the 61st Street Elementary School in Los Angeles.
