CNS News ^ | May 17, 2013 | Elizabeth Harrington

First Lady Michelle Obama has expanded her anti-obesity campaign to museums, enlisting them to offer “healthy food options,” and change their menus.

Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move!” initiative is now calling for museums, zoos, gardens, science and technology centers to “join the call to action,” to decrease obesity among children.

The first lady is recruiting these institutions to join the “Let’s Move! Museums and Gardens” project because of their power to “influence real and sustained behavior change” on the eating habits of kids.

“With their impressive reach and great potential for impact, museums and gardens can launch community efforts to create a healthier generation using interactive exhibits, outdoor spaces, gardens and programs that encourage families to eat healthy foods and increase physical activity,” the program said.

So far, 624 institutions across the country have signed up.

One of the goals of the program is that 90 percent of the museums and centers that offer food service will “already offer or will change their menu to offer food options that reflect healthy choices.”

Let’s Move! wants the museums to abide by the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) nutrition standards.....

I wonder how long it will take for this *lets move* agenda to be long forgotten after the two current residents if The White House leave office. I say 30 days.

The Wookie is imposing her will on any place that gets federal funding, or from states that get federal funding, or from cities, towns or locals that get federal funding.

If she really wanted to do something about obesity, she’d do something about that caboose she’s carting around.

Well, she’s probably been to some of the museums in DC, and they have plenty of them.

This is gonna be fun up ahead. She will not have maids for the rest of her life.

Let's face it...she was a big, fat slob before Oprah cleaned her up and she'll soon revert to her true slovenly self.

She does this because she has nothing else to do and she wants to look “Impotent”.

With Obama off all over the Globe with Reggie she is pretty much left alone to her own devices, and she is unqualified for most anything else.

Her caboose is genetic, there really isn’t much she can do to remove it.

Likely true, but you know the Media and the Glamour industry. They will christen her new personna as something like “Urban Chic”.

She's no Jackie Kennedy. She was a slovenly mess. The picture of her in that gold blouse with him and his mandarin collar are what they really are.

She said he's a slob...nice wife...

I thought the voluptuous nudes of Renoir & Reubens would have long ago been spraypainted by the feminists with “This image exploits womyn!!!” or some such.

BTW, didn’t those artists save on modeling costs by persuading their young housemaids to pose in the altogether (”Let me immortalize you, my dear!”)?

But then, every artist likes to put a little of himself into his work.

She could just have all the fat kids to trade places with the starving kids living in the food deserts.

Want to stop obesity — then the US Govt needs to stop subsidizing corn and soy beans, needs to end Mosanto’s monopoly on “one time” grow seeds - and allow farmers to become competitive in producing foods/vegetables that people need to cook “in the home” meals and stop the heavy reliance on fast food and heavily processed foods....kids become fat because parents are too lazy to but healthy foods and cook in the home...they need to drink water only.

There are simple solutions to this problem. I was a kid in the 70’s/80’s and a fat kid was a rare item — because my mom cooked out meals from homemade ingredients! We played outside all day - every day and only played video games at arcades on FRI or SAT night...but not every week...

Kids that aren’t fat usually have chosen a healthy diet and are involved in sports...those are clear facts and when the govt gets out of the way...then it can be that way again...

Even now, I chose not to eat any meat — eggs, chicken, pork, and beef have chemicals and other non-natural crap inside of it that poisons the product — and I feel sooo much better...I cannot change this - but I don’t have to participate...screw the Obama’s and their little causes...M needs to loose weight an control her husband before she preaches to us about anything...

If the leftists have the vote fraud machine dialed in to the extent that Hillary wins in 16 and Bill becomes the, uh, First Man-slut, the program won't go away, it'll just get expanded to strip-bars.
