    It's been my experience as a teacher that if a kid doesn't want to eat it, he won't. If you put a plate full of fruits and veggies on a tray for lunch and he only likes apples, he's just going to eat apples. Some kids barely eat anything off their trays. They know their parents will feed them whatever they want when they get home. So I'm not sure what the solution is there...

    I don't think there should be vending machines in schools. If a students wants to eat crap, he can bring it from home.

    I agree that PE should be mandatory for at least 2 times a week. And they need to be taught how to be healthy, not just how to play games.

    I see Mrs Obama getting a little thick and don't imagine she remotely follows the food pyramid. In the same way I don't think that a aesthetician with acne knows a single thing about proper skin care. Or like the overweight gym instructor at my kid's elementary school.

    *shrug*

    maybe I'm snide
    I think Mrs. Obama looks fine. She's pear-shaped, so she's a little thicker on the bottom than the top. I wouldn't say she's overweight at all.

    Yeah, the wars in the middle east have no value at all, but this food plate, it's the ****ing Holy Grail of health.

    I was going to comment that I didn't think the 2 mil in this graphic was any big deal, then I run into to comments like this. You are your party's own worst enemy sometimes, Pete.

    Especially when you consider the cost of obesity to the medical system in America.

    It doesn't take a brain scientist to figure this out. I'm quite sure Mellie mixed her metaphors intentionally.
