MIAMI (POOL/CNN) – First lady Michelle Obama celebrates the fourth anniversary of her "Let's Move!" campaign.

In Miami on Tuesday, she called for young people to support the program by taking to social media.

"I am asking you to show me how you move. All right, it's a little bit of a challenge. I want to hear from everyone. I want to hear from schools and day care centers and households. I want to see what after school programs are doing all across the country," Obama said. "I want to see those new snacks you're serving, the fun games you're playing and the gardens you're growing and I want you to tweet it, Facebook it, Instagram it with the hashtag "Let's Move" so that everyone can see how you and your community are moving toward a healthier future."

The campaign is aimed at ensuring all children grow up healthy and reach their full potential.
