  1. Michelle Obama Orders 1,556-Calorie Meal →

    Hypocrisy at it’s finest: I can eat whatever I want, but you and your children need to eat healthier!

    First lady Michelle Obama ordered a whopper of a meal at the newlyopened Washington diner Shake Shack during lunch on Monday.

    A Washington Post journalist on the scene confirmed the first lady, who’s made a cause out of child nutrition, ordered a ShackBurger, fries, chocolate shake and a Diet Coke while the street and sidewalk in front of the usually-packed Shake Shack were closed by security during her visit.

    According to nutritional information on Shake Shack’s Web site, the meal amounted to 1,556 calories.

    first of all: this is not news.

    now that we’ve said that, i’m going to break this down into the smallest pieces so you, like a child eating a school lunch, can digest it.

    michelle obama is a grown adult woman. she can make her own choices as to what she eats.

    school-aged children are children. they are not adults. they are still growing, developing, and learning habits for adulthood. when presented with sugary or salty junk food versus vegetables or grains, i think you’d be hard pressed to find more than a handful of children [you know, an actual sample size, scientifically speaking] who would gravitate toward the healthier option unless they had been taught to by their parents. children don’t NEED million options, they don’t need to eat pizza every day, and they aren’t fucking libertarians. they’re kids. and kids need a nutritious balanced diet so that they can grow into functional adults who are then free to make their own dietary choices. 

    if children don’t even see nutritious food at school, where they spend most of their day, how can they learn that they’re supposed to be doing what’s right for their growing bodies? 

    how is this even a discussion?

    "you and your children need to eat healthier!"

    "public schools need to provide healthy options for children, because in many cases, school may be the only place they can get fruits and vegetables!"

    fixed that for you.
