“childhood obesity isn’t just a public health threat, it’s not just an economic threat, it’s a national security threat as well." ~ Michelle Obama
"WE can't just leave it up to the Parents" ~ Michelle Obama
Where does Childhood Obesity rate in regards to National Security in your opinion?
"Can't leave food choices up to the parents"~Do you agree? Do you consider allowing the government to mandate, and require schools to PAY more~ better hands?
Do you think changing school lunches will Change the Children? Or~ go to waste?
"You can put on the menu more fruits and veggies, but if you don't get the beans and the broccoli in the tummy of the child and it goes to the trash cans instead. then it's just a facade -- a waste. Just makes things look good on paper." Dr. Stephen Kleinsmith

She is the first lady, not the first mommy. I don't need a young snot nose kid like her telling me how to cook, I was cooking long before she was even born.
When I raised my kids we didn't have any fat kids. This was before they invented video games, computers, and cell phones. When kids got out of school they played outdoors till it was dark out. Then they came in ate their supper, did their homework and got ready for bed. Kids did not sat on their butts all day like they do now. They have even taken out PE in schools now.
It's not that they don't eat right, it is because they don't get any exercise.

It's nice to provide healthy food to kids at school, but I can tell you that it's wasted on a large scale. I have eaten with my kids in the lunch room at school and a majority of those 'healthy choices' get tossed in the trash. They only get 15 minutes to eat and a portion of that time is spent looking around the room for their friends. They drink the milk and eat whatever the protein is, but I have yet to see a child dig into the salad or veggies that are on the tray.
