The healthy school lunches touted by Michelle Obama have not been popular. (RELATED: Kentucky students to first lady Michelle Obama: Your food tastes like vomit)
The complex body of meal regulations implemented by the Department of Agriculture under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010″ has long been a signature issue for the first ladyat least until just last week when the USDA permanently abandoned the acts ironic limitations on kids caloric intake of protein and carbohydrates.
Michelle Obamas other signature issue the Lets Move! campaign to combat childhood obesity also looks to be rapidly heading to the ash heap of history.
The Lets Move! campaign was announced in 2010. Its ambitious goal: to solve the obesity problem in America within a generation.
So far, things arent going well. The latest data on kid fitness suggests that 3 in 4 kids aged 12 to 15 fail to meet the federal governments minimum recommendations of an at least an hour of vigorous activity each day, reports an Associated Press at WNYW.
The data comes from a 2012 National Youth Fitness Survey of about 800 teens and preteens. The kids self-reported their own physical activity. They also submitted to physical exams.
Federal researchers would not express disappointment in a statistic showing that fully 75 percent of American kids dont do a bare minimum of exercise each day.

in that one picture I drew the same conclusion.
I’m all for her moving, to the sun, another planet, so please Moochelle, lets move
But does cheese like you?
What have Barry & The Mooch ‘touched’ that hasn’t failed?
I’ll bet the farm that the hypocrite Michelle eats like a frikkin’ pig.
yes, lets move her to Alderaan
A good start on solving child obesity is doing away with EBT cards.
Let’s move failing??? The last time she sneezed, her lard ass did not stop moving for a week.
I love cheese, but even if Michelle was made out of it, I still wouldn’t like her.
everything except taking America down the road to destruction
Seriously....is there ANYTHING that either one of these cretinous reprobate scumbags have ever done successfully?
how much taxpayer cash was spent on this stupidity?
GITMO would be perfectly acceptable to me.
her Lets Move campaign is in fact VERY SUCCESSFUL
she moves around a hell of a lot (on taxpayer-paid jet airplanes)
The Emperor has No Clothes, and The Empress has a Fat @ss.
She said: ‘I did a show with Michelle and I just loved being with her.
‘She probably ate more than any other guest I’ve ever had on the show.
‘She kept eating even during commercials.’
Paula said: ‘You know what their favorite foods are it’s hot wings, you know, those kinds of foods that are not necessarily top-of-the-list healthy foods, so she’s no different than the rest of us.
‘We love those kinds of foods, we just know that we can’t eat them everyday.’
Kind of suspicious that a few years down the road Deen was accused of racism and lost millions in endorsements. Kind of funny huh???
