This is wrong and creepy! Not only that, I feel she is the biggest hypocrite when it comes to how to eat. Look at her super bowl menu, come on. It is O.K. for her and her family to eat like that, but not for the rest of the Americans. Not only that, who said it is even okay for the President's wife to even be telling Americans what they can and can not eat. Have we gone that far down the communistic road, that we need to get our parenting advice, and our food tips from the first lady.

Here's a question. If she cares so much, why is it that those getting food stamps can still buy whatever food they please?? Maybe there is good place for her to start, and not telling those paying for it on their own. I have seen countless times parents walking out with bags of doritos, sugar drinks (you know the ones in the little barrel) ice cream. ding dongs, and what ever else payed for by the government.

Damaging parent/child relationships is their specialty. And I couldn't agree more on the foodstamp issue. Years ago we got them when my husband was laid off and I was pregnant with my son. Before the morph into conservatism. But even then I though it was ridiculous what some people bought with them. Crab legs, expensive steak, then the junk food. All while loading it up in a fairly brand new car. While wearing the latest sport shoes and bling and talking on the newest cell phone.

Since some folks live in the "not so great parts of town" let them run from the crime areas as exercise. Just sayin'. That's a really, really cute tip......

Only $400? Our family of 3 with one on the way was given almost $700 a month! I couldn't figure out how to spend it all and then it just carried over to the next month when we got another almost $700!

This is what happens when "charity" is not run privatly within the community. However, this is what the goal was to begin with. I just posted a link about John Taylor Gatto. This socialism push here is NOT new. It goes back AT LEAST to before the 1850's with the begining of compulsery schooling. The more I find out the more sick to my stomache I become.

That's crazy, and frustrating. I remember when my oldest daughter was 4, she had all kinds of dental problems that needed to be taken care of. We had saved our money so we could pay cash for her dental work. The frustrating thing to me, is we have always had cars that are a little older, so we can pay cash for them too. Here comes a lady in the office who had a brand new suburban, with lettering on the side of her vehicle sporting her business name. She takes her kid in the office, and sits down. The receptionist hollers out to her that she forgot her medicare card. I was very annoyed. This to me is the grand scheme of socialism. I don't mind paying taxes to help those who honestly need help, but it would be nice if those people honestly needed help, and didn't like getting help.

Tammy i couldnt agree more with YOU. I worked with this girl, she was making $14/hour plus commission. Not a horrible wage, heres the catch. She had 5 children and was pregnant with her sixth. She drove a brand new car, iphone, all kids had ipods, and her kids were always dressed very nice. Why? Because she got $400 a month in food stamps, 10 gallons of milk plus WIC stuff, her electric/gas pretty much covered and lived in a HOUSE for $55 a month. All her children were overweight from eating nothing but junk food and very well ei:steak, etc.

Those kinds of tricks will only work so long. Kids are smart and will see through her stupid "cute trick" ideas and just not do them. When you trick your kids all you end up doing is building their distrust in you. This could be potentially damaging to the parent/child relationship too. People just need to be open and honest with their kids about being physically healthy and parents need to lead by example.

This is just wrong to me, have most of Americans turned into that much of invalids that they need a Nanny state to tell them what and what not to do and to eat. It is frustrating, because I know there are many like minded people like us, who don't want any kind of governmental interference, but when the majority of the people accept this, and you don't hear a peep out of them, it makes you wonder.

How about her new one... That the government should now buy breast feeding mothers pumps, because breastfeeding your child makes it less likely for them to become obese. The lady is off her rocker.

IT's one thing to encourage and put out suggestions and try to motivate people to do the right thing, but you can't make someone do something they don't want to do. The problem is that when the government steps in they like to do more than just encourage. They like to ban things. We would be better off if they encouraged the FDA to close up shop and let the private sector use labeling on products to sperate the crap from the good stuff. It's ok to have laws stating that the labeling must be true then the consumer can sue the pants of anyone lieing on their labels. It's not like the FDA has kept poison off the shelves, their helping to put it on there!
