Michella Obama Highlights Importance of Healthful Eating

Michelle Obama's Agenda to Focus on Food

After the election, many prominent foodies had high hopes of President Obama taking on the country's food system. However, they were disappointed when it became clear that the president has more important things to worry about than the nation's obesity crisis. His wife's agenda, on the other hand, will focus on fresh, local, and healthful eating.

Since moving into the White House, Michelle Obama has opened the kitchen up for a press tour while publicly discussing her family's diet. Last week she served lunch at a neighborhood soup kitchen, Miriam's Kitchen, an organization that offers 100 percent homemade dishes to the homeless. Of the experience, Mrs. Obama said:

You know, we want to make sure our guests here and across the nation are eating nutritious items. Collect some fruits and vegetables; bring by some good healthy food. We can provide this kind of healthy food for communities across the country, and we can do it by each of us lending a hand.

I'm happy to see that the first lady is being a role model and encouraging the country to understand the importance of nutritious, fresh, and delicious foods. Only time will tell if her efforts make a significant impact on the way we eat. What do you think of her foodie agenda?

It is kind of creepy.While I believe the obesity crisis is important, Obama does have more important things to worry about. It is nice to see Michelle taking on nutrition. Hopefully she can make a difference.
