Michelle Obama thinks M&Ms are the key to fighting obesity
This Fox News headline says it all.
In Hawaii with her husband for the Asia Pacific conference, Michelle Obama
Just like she does. As a matter of fact, she informed the students, these are her favorite foods.
And all readily available in "under-served communities."
After that inspiring nutritional and economic discussion with students, practicing what she preached
And by the way Michelle Obama, here are the two main reasons "some people are growing up without vegetables"; they're not the reasons you say but they're easily correctable if people--not governments--take responsibility for the foods they buy, prepare and eat.
1) students in certain neighborhoods are growing up without vegetables and other nutritious foods because
(a) their parents--aren't buying them
(b) students don't eat the "free" fruits and vegetables readily available in their subsidized school lunches.
2) those communities are "under-served" with grocery stores, food "desserts" you've been calling them, because well...one reason is the high crime rate inhibiting those Wall Street types who place profits before people from opening stores.
The following is just a small sample of deadly incidents occurring in and around neighborhood food stores in food desserts, within several miles of the Obamas' Chicago residence, in the past few weeks. Robberies and other criminal events are so routine they don't make the headlines.

Yeah, I know Michelle, mentioning these inconvenient facts would silence your basic narrative and destroy your core identity: helpless people suffering until you and your government cronies save them at great personal sacrifice. Giving people control of and responsibility for their own lives instead of treating them as passive beings, dependent on others would reveal the hollowness of your purpose as you enrich yourselves while expanding your power.
Go eat some M&Ms. They're healthy.
