One of Michelle Obama’s goals is to reduce childhood obesity. She started a campaign called Let’s Move! to “raise a healthier generation of kids”. From the web site comes this tip for parents:
Parents and caregivers can set a great example for the whole family by creating a healthy environment at home. Any combination of steps-making fruits and vegetables part of every meal, limiting treats, walking and playing, even shopping together—can add up to make a real difference in children’s lives and help build healthy habits for life.
This advocate for healthier children has a favorite food and guess what it is? French fries!
“My favorite?” Obama said. “Oh, this is a tough one. “It is tough, you know, because if I say something not healthy, people will be, like, you aren’t really committed to health. If I say something healthy, you know — I do — honestly, I like all kinds of foods.” Obama mentioned Indian food, and then Mexican food, and then said: “No, if I picked one favorite, favorite food, it’s French fries.”
