U.S. President Barack Obama with first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia (R) and Sasha(L) walk to the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. on January 29, 2012.

The president recently sought to change cafeteria menus in schools throughout the nation after learning that a third of all children in the United States are obese. Although the new proposal will cost more over the next five years it will ensure that children receive fair servings of fruits and vegetables at school.

Michele Obama stood by her husband’s proposal saying, “As parents we try to prepare decent meals, limit how much junk food our kids eat, and ensure they have a reasonably balanced diet. When you’re putting in all that effort, the last thing we want is for our hard work to be undone each day in the school cafeteria.”

Some states and corporations have opposed the new measure putting much effort into blocking its progress. If the proposal passes thousands of schools will have to replace fattening foods with whole grain selections.

  1. That’s not the only problem but it’s a start. We need the old ladies back with the hair nets that cooked from scratch!! What happened to playing outside after your homework!! we climbed trees, play kick/Stick ball, hide and go seek. We used our imagination and didn’t come home until the street lights came on.

    These kids need to get off the computer, stop watching tv and go play and burn off those unecessary calories!

  2. I love the first family and it makes me sad that this man who is trying to better things for the American people is so hated by some simply because of the color of his skin. Maybe as time goes by many more of these hateful people will deminish. We’ve come a long way in this nation but we still have a ways to go. The President and his family make me proud.
