First Lady Michelle Obama has expanded her anti-obesity campaign to museums, enlisting them to offer healthy food options, and change their menus.
Mrs. Obamas Lets 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 Lets 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.
Lets Move! wants the museums to abide by the Center for Disease Controls (CDC) nutrition standards.....

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...
no matter....she’s a slob...she’ll revert
Will she expanded her anti-obesity campaign to car washes next?.
The Smithsonian Institution National Zoo Nanny State PING!
Thanks for the ping!
Monsanto is BO’s BFF :(
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.
