Eat better for less

Michelle Obama has been in the news a lot recently as she continues her fight to reduce childhood obesity through her "Let's Move" campaign. The latest assault against her initiative has come from people in our House of Representatives. They want to undo school food service reforms that were passed in 2010. Amazingly, these people, people we elected, oppose children being served more vegetables, fruits, and whole grains in their school cafeterias. They also don't think limits should be put on the amount of sodium, fat, and calories in the foods served in schools. This became apparent in the House spending bill released in mid-May. It would let schools opt out of the new nutrition standards that the first lady has promoted through the "Let's Move" campaign.
