Michelle Obama to Announce Food Initiative With Disney Theme Parks
First lady Michelle Obama will appear with Disney CEO Bob Iger in Washington Tuesday to announce an expansion of the media companys food guidelines. Disney representatives say the corporation will be making health-conscious revisions to menus at their theme parks and resorts, though the details and scope of their implementation are yet to be revealed.
Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
Michelle Obama has made promotion of nutrition and exercise a major theme of her tenure as first lady, particularly concerning children. The administration says her Lets Move campaign has led 1,500 American schools to adopt healthier menus and fitness programs. Several large food distributors have also partnered with the initiative to cut back on calories in their products or expand their stores into neighborhoods without ready access to healthy foods.
Nor is this her first partnership with Disney. In February the first lady visited ESPNs Wide World of Sports complex at Disney World to host athletic and dance games for children at the theme park, alongside professional athletes and Disney stars.
Some critics of the president have targeted Michelle Obamas initiatives for what they view as unneeded government intrusion into their private lives. Last week on Good Morning America, the first lady said it was about a larger issue.
Thats not really what Lets Move! has ever been about, she said, This isnt about government telling people what to do.

Just go to your local amusement park. I think just about everyone lives within driving distance of one. You can have as much fun there as at Disneyworld, and you avoid the hassles mentioned above.
Cevapcici, sarma, and slivovica for all!!!! (Well, no slivovica for the kids!)
Too bad these CEOs don’t tell Moochie to sod off.
Oh wait, Disney is ABC News...never mind!
Michelle Sez: "I eat these so you won't have to."
Does this include Disney fleet of floating theme park cruise ships too?
chip away a little freedom here, a little freedom there.. before ya know it..
Been there a couple of times myself, found the food too expensive and not all that good, suggest you get stamped , go out and eat and come back.
We know she WAS a lawyer!
I don’t believe she is one now.
Official Food Nazi Diet: Dirt, Air & Water
I was sure this was a John Semmens thread.
They’re going to be voted out in November, and she’s still trying to tell the nation what to eat. Is there no limit to the Obamas’ foolishness?
Never been to a Disney park, and now i have a valid reason. If that control freak is spreading her food control freak garbage there I want nothing to do with it. Trust me, I will be letting everyone know.. heh spread the word and make their choice of food policewoman known far and wide.
You know what sucks?
Even if Obama gets voted out of office we will never be rid of these aholes!
Like the Clinton’s and Jimmy Carter they just wont go away!
“mooch-elle nobama has made spending taxpayers money on extravagant personal vacations her major theme of her term as worst lady.”
Agreed. Gloria Allred comes a close second. Someone has to chase the ambulance.
“The first step for a lot of people is to get off the defective food pyramid the government has been pushing for 40 years and get on a diet that helps the body perform.”
Only if they want to. It is a choice.
“I have had enough of her and her skinny hot dog, hamburger and dog eating husband.”
I don’t know what to say. He apparently was elected, apparently was born in Hawaii, apparently was the bearer of hope and change, and we invited this foul stench from the bowels of hell with it. And if you can believe it, he stands a good chance of being re-elected.
The fault lies not with the “O”, but with his galaxy of starstruck followers. Anybody remember the People’s Temple and the Good Reverend Jimmie Jones?
1. axe handles
A method for discussing the width of a girl's ass without her knowledge. Ass width measured by how many ax handles, laid horizontally, would constitute the diameter of her rear end.
Is she cute?
No man, she's at least 2 ax handles
Be a real shame if her gay, commie husband lost in a couple of months and she couldn’t implement this bullshit. /sarc
