WASHINGTON-- First Lady Michelle Obama is expected Thursday to announce headway in her drive to have restaurants reduce portion sizes, part of her "Let's Move' campaign against obesity.
"The Childhood Obesity Task Force Report"--commissioned as part of Mrs. Obama's "Let's Move" project, "specifically calls on restaurants to, "consider their portion sizes, improve children's menus, and make healthy options the default choice whenever possible." below, from White House....
UPCOMING GUIDANCE FOR FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA
Thursday, September 15 11:45 AM - First Lady Michelle Obama will make a major Let's Move! announcement related to providing healthier choices and greater variety for families in restaurants - a critical piece of ending the epidemic of childhood obesity in a generation. One of every two dollars spent on food is spent in restaurants, and over one-third of calories consumed in America are eaten at restaurants. The Childhood Obesity Task Force Report specifically calls on restaurants to, "consider their portion sizes, improve children's menus, and make healthy options the default choice whenever possible." This event will be held in Hyattsville, MD and space is limited.
Whether she said that or not, just the fact that it’s BELIEVABLE she said it. Her scorn for this country is well-known, and usually her handlers try to keep her out of the limelight. I’m sure she’d be more than willing to come out full-fledged, ala Hillary.
Nailed it. But that would require one of the 0bama's to actually open and run a business and have some business sense.
>Michelle Obama prodding restaurants to reduce portion size<
And of course she’s also reminding them to reduce the price of that portion accordingly. < /Sarcasm>
All this to make her appear as if she cares.
Her ass has its own zip code and she lectures the rest of us. She has 2500 calorie lunches and she lectures the rest of us. I really despise hypocrites.
Hey, mooch-elle. I know you’re reading this, you worn-out grifter. Shut your fat pie hole and leave the rest of us alone. You are the last person anyone (including children) need “guidance” from. Go to your room, eat your large portion ribs and bowl of fries and STFU. Did you ever consider this is supposedly the “...land of the free”?
I wondered the same thing. The only people I know that go bat sh*t crazy when someone makes fun of that big, fat thang in the WH is DUmmies and other libs.
Another successful heavy lift.
Excluding her personal staff the "servants" will still be employed in two years.
I cannot wait until the First Dude introduces his
“Let’s Hunt!” initiative.
RUN SARAH RUN
That vegetable garden is too big even for that mealy mouthed family.
Reduce your own portion size, Mooshelle
Eleanor Roosevelt traveled around the country for her husband, authored a weekly newspaper column and hosted a radio show. Jacqueline Kennedy engaged in an expansive campaign to restore the White House. Lady Bird Johnson pioneered environmental protection and beautification; Pat Nixon promoted volunteerism; Betty Ford supported women's' rights; Rosalynn Carter aided those with mental disabilities; Nancy Reagan founded the "Just Say No" drug awareness campaign; Barbara Bush promoted literacy; Hillary Rodham Clinton sought to reform the healthcare system in the U.S.; and Laura Bush supported women's' rights groups and encouraged childhood literacy.
Michelle Obama has focused her efforts on food--figuratively and literally.
Throw out the trash 2012
“First Lady Michelle Obama is expected Thursday to announce headway in her drive to have restaurants reduce portion sizes”
Well unless she’s eating there. Then supersize it.
Michelle needs to keep her nose out of our kitchens and lives. She needs to look in a mirror.
Moochelle returns to the hangar after the C-17 cargo door finally found something that would not fit through its massive opening.
Just thinking about that and the First Dude - it seems like a different world - normalcy, patriotism, cut the gov’t and some agencies, companies hiring, wall street goes up, investigations of the former administration, children being giving hope for their future, no death panels for the elderly - America has been rescued and then restored. It is all possible.
I can tell by the size of her butt she does not mean that to apply to HER portions!
“Cut my serving; and Ill go somewhere else to eat next time.”
Cut my serving of veggies, good meat, and a nice starch and I’ll be much more likely to fill the gap with a sugary, fat-loaded dessert and the rest of the rolls and butter.
Socialists have always had trouble with humans making choices.
She should have lunch with Ben Bernanke. The Fed has a better way of getting restaurants to reduce their portion size ;)
Here is what Michelle recently had to eat at Shake Shack, whilst she prods restaurants to reduce portion sizes ...
BTW: She ALSO had a Shake Shack Milkshake with that ...
Hey, big butt Michelle, it is not illegal to take home the food you don’t it at the restaurant and make another meal of two out of it. There is a $13.95 dish at a local Mexican restaurant that I get that makes at least two more meals for me at home.
Michelle’s butt is as large as the combined posteriors of the two hotties.
The plentiful posterior making it’s way up the steps to board AF-1 = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXko_vPA3HM&NR=1
“Let’s Move”? How about Obummer and Moochele adopt this slogan themselves and “move” right out of the WH and back to Chicago.
Somebody should “prod” Michele to “reduce her portion size”.
What kind of prod, I won’t say, but...!
And just who, do you suppose, is going to listen to her?
That would necessitate those lazy ghetto shuckin' and jiven grifters to get off their lazy fat butts and do some work. Never happen. They've hit the motherload and will milk us until they die. And that's liable to be a long, long time.
“You can get anything you want at Fatass’s Restaurant”
What event was that pic taken from?
Nevermind, I see its photoshopped.
This woman is trying to get restaurants to give us less food for our money? Well that’s real nice of you moochelle. Found a really good way to spend your time as first lady huh?
There are few people who are getting fat by eating restaurant food. Most people don’t have that kind of money to be eating out all the time. This is another case of the liberal mind living in the fantasy world of the unicorn farm.
Hey, Michelle! Get a grip. You are the pot calling the kettle black.
(Pictures of Me-shelle Obigmouthmama eating and drinking).
Honest to gosh - does anyone remember seeing any of our other first ladies photographed while eating?
Just what is MO attempting to telegraph???
I hope the Restaurant Association comes out soon with a negative response to MO’s ‘suggested’ portion size.
And sends out an edict banning her from all restaurants for 5 years, and makes her repent.
P U S H B A C K - TELL HER OFF.
Alinsky, Narcissism, Ridicule and laughter!!!!!
GyG Never Laugh At A Narcissist!
Best picture of all.
“Big bottoms....Big bottoms....Talk about bum cakes, Moochelle’s got ‘em....”
Michelle’s husband’s policies have accomplished this.
Restaurants have been reducing portions in order to keep prices consistent. So have general food companies.
