Monday, Mrs. Obama pleaded with restaurants small and large to take a little butter or cream out of their dishes, use low fat milk and provide apple slices or carrots as a default side dish on the kids' menu.
What the Fk? I have healthy options on my menu. Guess what? When people go out to eat, they routinely choose the guilty pleasures. 3 to 1. Children's menu, too. We constantly hear from our customers, "When I go out to eat, I want to be treated". So get off our backs Michelle Obama. Look at the sales of most restaurants. The proof is in the sales. Does she want us out of business for catering to customer demands?

.I guess Michelle would have some believeing they aren't offered
It seems that way.... People need to be responsible for their OWN choices... Heaven forbid personal responsibility apply while one is dining 'out' with their family. If people were personally responsible for what they put in their bodies, there wouldn't be a demand for large portions of cream sauce, meat, and cheese..... Supply and Demand.... Business 101 Ms Obama..

I suspect I'll be called a socialist for invoking France, but butter, cheese and cream are a big part of the diet there, however obesity isn't such an issue because portion sizes are more reasonable there and people walk a lot more
Hrmmm, so if one were to be PERSONALLY responsible enough to box up 3/4 of their OWN ordered meal or only order 1/2 a portion size, then go for a walk on their OWN, maybe the US wouldn't have an issue??? P E R S O N A L R E S P O N S I B I L I T Y, it's an amazing thing!!! ;o)

There are way too many FAT families in the USA.
There are too many FAT families in the USA because they lack personal responsibility. They lack the ability to make the RIGHT choices for their family and themselves..... Not because of the restaurant.
