Michelle Obama Wants Restaurants To Move Like the Kids!
First lady Michelle Obama is taking her fight against obesity right to the source of the problem for some people: restaurants.
She is urging the nation’s eateries to put healthier options on their menus , label them so people can see them better and market nutritious foods to kids.
She spoke to the National Restaurant Association and asked chefs to do things like take a little of the butter or cream out of recipes and provide fruit or veggies as the default side dish for kids’ meals, instead of potato chips or french fries.
Mrs. Obama notes that Americans spend half their food dollars outside the home – and eat a-third of their meals out.
