WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama says a new focus of her anti-childhood obesity effort will be to help people cook more of their meals at home.

The first lady says food prepared at home has less fat, sodium, cholesterol and calories than meals prepared in restaurants.

But Mrs. Obama also says too many people think they don't have the time or the skills needed to cook for themselves.

But she says there are plenty of meals that can be whipped up in under 30 minutes and for less than the cost of a takeout meal.

The first lady spoke Friday at a health summit in Washington.
