The American Egg Board continued its tradition of supporting the White House Easter Egg Roll by donating 14,040 hard-cooked and dyed eggs for the April 9 event.


Themed “Let's Go, Let's Play, Let's Move,” the day's activities helped educate families on smart ways to incorporate healthy eating and exercise choices into their daily routine. America’s egg farmers are proud of their long-standing support of the White House Easter Egg Roll and the opportunity to present the 35th Commemorative Egg. “As chairman for the American Egg Board, I can’t begin to express how honored I felt to present this incredible egg to Mrs. Obama, the President and their family,” said Chris Pierce, who attended the ceremony with his own family. “Eggs are an incredible part of a healthy diet and lifestyle that Let’s Move promotes."
