Michelle Obama Offers Course: 'Supermarket Shopping 101' By Elizabeth Harrington August 31, 2012
(CNSNews.com) - As part of her anti-obesity Let's Move campign, First Lady Michelle Obama is now offering a brief online course: Supermarket Shopping 101.
The course, which now appears on the letsmove.gov website, provides novice shoppers with tips such as steer clear of the cookie, snack and soda aisle.
Supermarket Shopping 101: Read This Before You Hit the Grocery Store, written by Lisa Cericola, was first published among the materials the first lady presented online last week when she was a "guest editor" at iVillage.com. Now, it has been republished on the Lets Move blog.
As CNSNews.com previously reported, iVillage.com, which featured Mrs. Obama as a guest editor, also features graphic sex tips, including from prostitutes.
A self-described cheat sheet for grocery shopping, "Supermarket Shopping 101" includes tips on when is the best time to shop and how to navigate a grocery store.
Youve got your list, youve got your cart--lets get shopping! the article says. Focus on the perimeter of the store first--thats typically where youll find the produce, meat and dairy sections, which stock fresh, whole foods that should comprise the bulk of your shopping list.
Supermarket Shopping 101 instructs shoppers to leave the junk food for last, in order to train yourself to eat healthy.
Steer clear of the cookie, snack and soda aisle until after youve collected everything on your list--at that point, your cart should be full, which might make you feel less tempted to buy things you dont need, the article says.

Mrs. Romney doesn't think we're stupid.
Remember, Hillary thought we were stupid, too.
I really hope the Koch brothers don’t own Clorox Wipes because they are the official sponsor of the Browne household move.
Super exciting stuff. RT Michelle Obama to Guest-Edit @iVillage - The Cut (via @thecut) http://bit.ly/TyQhN4
Ready to eat lots of pizza tonight at @SullivanBakery with @GoodFoodStories
She’s smart. She went to shopping school.
Now she’s a professor of shopping. She could have gone pro but she decided to teach instead. She really cares. She wants to give back.
Just think of all the little people out there, struggling with their shopping carts, with no idea how to find their way around the produce, past the bakery, down the canned food aisle, and out to the check-out lines. I weep for them.
So does Michelle. The difference is, she is going to do something to help make a difference.
Does she also have tips on shopping in Spain, Italy or England 101?
Do has she says, not as she does...

Step 1: Get your own EBT card so someone else pays for it.
Hypocrisy, thy name is Michelle.
"last time I saw a rump dat big it was headin into the first turn, Belmont at 43 to 1"
I HOPE she speaks to WIC because that’s where their base is. Those food stamp people have the MOST junk food in their baskets!
OMG! That is hilarios!
Bwahahaha! Look at this.
No budget for "fresh, whole foods," Mrs. Obama.
Notice the shout-out to her favorite grocery there? I wonder if they made a contribution.
I didn’t see anything about the most important rule
of grocery shopping.
1. ALWAYS eat before you go.
1a. Never go shopping hungry!
And ladies, don't forget this tip:
Giant rolls of tin foil are on sale next week so it's time to stock up.
I take no advice on anything from the First Moocher Wookie.
1. Buy whatever you want.
2. Pass the bill to your grandkids.
Even the White House chef and kitchen staff doesn't even shop. They just grab the phone and hit the Speed Dial. BAM.... a delivery truck appears a few minutes later with ribs and buckets of KFC.
Even when they're in Chicago, there's no need to shop.....just sends a couple of Secret Service agents (wearing full body armor) to that Bar-B-Q joint at 55th & Dorchester OR Charlie's Chicken at 114th Place and South Michigan.
Do you think she borrowed her Aunt and Uncle In-Laws Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards?
I hear you can buy almost anything with them...no limits.
How on earth can she give advice on something she’s never done!!
Oh...she’s the First Wookie. Never mind......
She could successfully end obesity simply by calling for junk foods to be banned from EBT.
If she cared more about obesity than about food industry campaign donations to her Party.
