Kids Are Fat Without A "PH"

I recently read an article about Michelle Obama and how she discovered her daughter was considered "overweight".

Ok, no it may not have been the brightest idea to publicize what her doctor said about her daughter. On the contrary, parents need to stop force feeding chemical ridden-sugar surged-genetically modified-starchy-salty-junk to their children.

Maury Povich should never be able to find that many fat babies in this nation. Good for Michelle Obama for finally telling parents the cold hard news. No you shouldn't feed your child soda, Mcdonalds, or doughnuts on a regular basis. How can you ever justify giving your six year old a burger with more than one patty?

Children are growing beings. They need nutritional food. Furthermore, agriculture in the U.S. has geared itself towards producing this awful food so parents are not only uninformed but can't afford good food once they know what to purchase.

So send your children OUTSIDE to play. Give them an apple instead of a bag of chips. Don't assume just because it says "Whole Grain" on the box of Fruit Loops that it's good for your child. And please become an example to your children by eating better yourself. They emulate you and your habits.

Below is the link to the article and a video of Michelle talking candidly about being the 1st Lady. I think she's doing a swell job so far despite what her husbands plate entails.
