Yes, we should probably just throw out the vegetables and replace them with deep fried Oreos.

No, just regular Oreos will be fine. But seriously...if a kid is NOT going to eat it, why force it on him? It will just go to waste. I couldn't eat half the stuff our cafeteria made when I was a kid. I could only eat the little frozen pizzas and stuff like that. Why? Because I was very particular in my eating. I can't eat anything that is creamy. That is why it is important to have a variety of choices for children--not a mandated menu.

You're right, but Twinkies are better. Too bad no one makes them anymore.

I heard last night...someone finally picked them up and will start making them again. I myself prefer the Zingers. lol

BWA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!

New term, new project. First Lady Michelle Obama has quietly dropped her "Let's Move" campaign, the healthy eating push she took on for schools all over the country during her husband's first term.

First Lady Michelle Obama appears to have abandoned, at least for now, her oft-criticized “Let’s Move” initiative to promote exercise and healthy eating among the nation’s youth, halting public appearances and statements related to the program.

Mrs. Obama does not appear to have done anything much to personally publicize the initiative in more than four months – since she released...
