President Barack Obama issued Executive Order (EO) 13545, dated June 
22, 2010, to amend EO 13265, dated June 6, 2002. EO 13545 changed the 
organization's name from the President's Council on Physical Fitness 
and Sports (PCPFS) to the President's Council on Fitness, Sports, and 
Nutrition (PCFSN); expanded the mission of the Council to include 
nutrition; and, increased the maximum number of members who serve on 
the Council from 20 to 25.
    The Council advises the President, through the Secretary of Health 
and Human Services, about the challenges and opportunities to promote

``advise the Secretary on ways to promote regular physical activity, 
fitness, sports participation, and good nutrition. Recommendations may 
address, but are not necessarily limited to, public awareness 
campaigns; federal, state and local physical activity; fitness, sports 
participation, and nutrition initiatives; and partnership opportunities 
between public- and private-sector health-promotion entities.'' Section

Section (3)(d) ``shall monitor the need to enhance programs and 
educational and promotional materials sponsored, overseen, or
