Asked by Parade magazine, "What do you hope to accomplish in your second term?” First Lady Michelle Obama said she wants to "impact the nature of food in grocery stores" with the aim of cutting sugar, fat and salt.

“With 'Lets Move!,' our goal is to end the problem of childhood obesity in a generation,” Mrs. Obama said. “And while we’ve seen some very profound cultural shifts, we still have communities that don’t have access to affordable and healthy foods.

    If she wants to control what food stamps will purchase I have no problem with that. But she sure can leave the ones buying/growing their own food out of her plan!

    52% of obese Americans say they have been discriminated against when applying for a job or promotion. ( HealthDay) The military turns away applicants because they are too fat. Many health related problems all come back to obesity.

    I fully support the First Lady's agenda to make healthy and whole foods the center piece in grocery stores and schools. Meanwhile if people want to sit down with a spoon and a jar of mayonnaise, then they should have a will.
