• Let’s Move? Student Faints During Michelle Obama Speech


    First Lady Michelle Obama hit the road and visited the Booker T. Washington High School on Monday in Atlanta, Georgia. It was there that her remarks were temporarily halted when a young student fainted.

    Did she have low blood sugar from following Michelle’s strict anti-junk food diet? It’s possible, but we may never know.

    In related news, Nebraska school nutrition experts are struggling to comply with the First Lady’s new federal snack relations. “I think we’ve gone too far, too fast,” says Diane Zipay, the director of nutritional services for the Westside School District. “And I don’t think it’s a real-world environment. We might have changed the school, but we haven’t changed the child or our world.”

    Diane’s concerns are shared by many critics of Michelle’s efforts who view such mandates as a tremendous waste of time, especially considering that children can eat whatever they please when they’re at home. More than one million students have reportedly stopped buying school lunches as a result of the regulations, so…who is this really helping?

    I want kids to feel like they can have an apple one day and a Snicker’s bar the next. And that’s OK,” says Zipay. “You cannot buy a Tic Tac in a Nebraska school. I checked.”
