Childhood obesity is a direct result of being born into a culture of junk food, drive-thru's and video games. Problem is the parents are deep into the convenience of fast food and the first thing they start feeding their baby is french fries and chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese and hot dogs. WHY ? Because it is easy and takes little effort on the parent who is content with the adult version of junk food for themselves. In moments after learning to drink from a cup they get fake juices, koolaid and sugar drinks and find it funny that they can even have soda's too.
Sorry, though Mrs Obama means well, you cannot fit A SQUARE PEG IN A ROUND HOLE. Even with all the fruits and veggies that are in any given grocery store the parents will fill their baskets with JUNK food anyway. It is a preference. They don't sell organic produce at a mini mart because it doesn't SELL! So if the government wants to change the eating habits of those who are dependent on the government then they should limit food stamps to whole foods only. Things that are nutrient rich for aiding in maintaining a healthy body. Not for use on anything containing white flour , white sugar or white rice products or food coloring additives would be a good start! There is the start of health reform and reducing the national healthcare budget spent on self induced metabolic disease.
