Michelle Obama credited her anti-obesity program with bringing about a "cultural shift" in the way Americans eat.
"Make no mistake about it. We are changing the conversation in this country. We are creating a cultural shift on how we live and eat. And our efforts are having an impact on our children's lives." The first lady touted the success of her Let's Move anti-obesity program during a visit on Friday to Orr Elementary School in Washington, D.C.
Obama said when she first began her signature initiative, she couldn't imagine a time when fast-food commercials advertised for breakfast sandwiches made with egg whites. And she praised restaurants like Red Lobster and Olive Garden for offering healthy choices.
Obama also reiterated an August study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that showed 19 states and territories saw obesity rates decline among low-income preschoolers.
But the first lady warned there was a still a "long way to go in solving this problem."
Right now, were truly at a pivotal moment a tipping point when the message is just starting to break through, when new habits are just beginning to take hold, and were seeing the very first glimmer of the kind of transformational change that were capable of making in this country."

she praised restaurants like Red Lobster and Olive Garden for offering healthy choices.
Too bad that since her hubby became president noone can afford to eat there.
Yep, and once they've been out there long enough to get some statistics, they'll be off the menu.
Think about how those words are put together ...
What a dumb phrase.
And I made no mistake about making that statement.
link? this is great...
The two hotties are keeping the balance on the stairs ...
No .. really ...
It takes two to counterbalance Guam .. (I know .. totally out of context ... but in MY weird mind ... it fit)
It is all about her. Always.
The concept of fast-food restaurants offering “healthy choices” did not begin with Moochelle; it has been going on for years.
Michelle is delusional. She also believes she is a fashion-setter.
