First lady Michelle Obama had tough words for grocery manufacturers Tuesday, telling them to step it up in their efforts to provide healthier foods to children and curb obesity.
At a conference at Washingtons Grand Hyatt Hotel, Obama talked about her own efforts on the childhood obesity front, explaining that her goal was to finally make this national public health threat a national priority.
Im here today to urge all of you to move faster and to go farther, because the truth is we dont have a moment to waste, she said in a 20-minute address. So, we need you all to step it up.
In recent weeks, most of the first lady's public appearances have been centered on her Lets Move initiative, launched last month.
She recently penned an essay for the cover of Newsweek on her efforts and has traveled to highlight success stories in addressing childhood obesity. And shes used her roles as a mother and as a fitness fanatic, to urge parents, school officials, mayors and governors to get more involved.

Ignore that “supply and demand” thing that you cling to like so many ideas of yesterday.
She should work so hard on her old man’s smokin’ habit and leave the rest of us alone.
What is with these democrats... every thing is a crisis, now the FLOTUS is screming we dont have a moment to waste. obama hollering about getting health care passed now.. I wish the two of them would vanish... some where
“We’ll STORM the area... PUT the CHEESEBURGER DOWN AND STEP AWAY SLOWLY!!!!! You are under arrest YOU FAT B****STD.”
Hey Michelle, why don’t you help them out? Give them a list of what they should sell. If they sell any candy or soda, send the SEIU goons in to torch their stores and break their legs.

I’m wondering when 0B0Z0 & Company will take over the food industry and run the grocery stores too?
I would have flipped her off then walked out.
The First Wookie speaks.
She also should work so hard on her rear compartment.
“Step it up” ?
My my, that sounds a bit UPPITY!
Crazy idea... How about the parents stop feeding their kids unhealthy foods? Why blame the grocers? Why not have the parents take a little responsibility? Oh, wait, that’s right. The ‘rats, aka socialists, don’t want parents raising their kids. They want the state raising them. So the state will take it upon itself to pressure grocers to simply take away our liberty and freedom to choose.
She must have gotten this hurry,hurry BS from the Kenyan.
Whats the rush?
Yeah, grocers “stepping it up” is really going to fix the problem. Who does the shopping? Kids eat what their parents let them/tell them to eat. Blaming grocers for parents not doing their job is completely foolish. Since when should a grocer’s priority be nutrition? Their business is buying and selling food.
She should have concentrated on her 'back'
So who made her Queen and Dictator?
