As the father of four kids, Radio Disney on-air personality Ernie D understands the challenges parents face in trying to encourage their kids to maintain an active lifestyle.

“We got my son a Nintendo 3DS for Christmas. Ever since then, all he wants to do is play,” he tells PEOPLE. “I’m like, ‘We need to go outside; you need to have fun!’ I want him to get outside and be active and be able to do fun things and play sports. That’s a part of life that shouldn’t be neglected at all.”

To help spread the message, Ernie D (and a few of the Disney XD stars) joined First Lady Michelle Obama to emcee a one-day event at Walt Disney World Resort on Feb. 11 to mark the second anniversary of The White House’s “Let’s Move” campaign, in conjunction with Disney Magic of Healthy Living, that encouraged kids to get moving through dance.
