First lady Michelle Obama's campaign to replace French fries with mini-carrots in fast-food kiddie meals and push youngsters to drop the Nintendo joystick and go sweat outside is becoming trendy. More than 30 Hollywood celebs have signed up to back a similar effort to provide fruit, veggie, and low-fat options in federally funded school lunches. The latest: Beverly Hills, 90210's Jennie Garth, who is urging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to push the Improving Nutrition for America's Children Act. Other backers: Nicole Richie, Jillian Michaels, and Scarlett Johansson.
