Michelle Obama's Agenda Includes Healthful Eating - NYT
The Obama's are far from vegetarian, but Obama's focus on fresh,
organic for all is great news.
I love this:
White House officials say the focus on healthy living will be a
significant item on Mrs. Obama�s agenda, which already includes
supporting working families and military spouses. As the nation
battles an obesity epidemic and a hard-to-break taste for
oversweetened and oversalted dishes, her message is clear: Fresh,
nutritious foods are not delicacies to be savored by the wealthy, but
critical components of the diets of ordinary and struggling families.
It is a notable shift in direction. The former first lady, Laura Bush,
insisted that fresh, organic foods be served in the White House, but
did not broadcast that fact to the public, according to Walter Scheib,
who served as executive chef under Presidents Bill Clintonand George
The Bush's tried so hard to be "down home normal folk," they probably
didn't want people to know they eat organic food and sip lattes.
