Michelle Obama pushes restaurants for more healthy foods

According to the Associated Press,

First lady Michelle Obama is prodding the nation's restaurants to add more healthy options to menus, label those items more prominently and market nutritious foods to kids.
Speaking to the National Restaurant Association on Monday, Mrs. Obama pleaded with restaurants small and large to take a little butter or cream out of their dishes, use low fat milk and provide apple slices or carrots as a default side dish on the kids' menu.

I think the first lady would do well to get her husband to stop smoking and to stop pushing for the normalization of behaviors that lead to AIDS before she lectures the National Restaurant Association on healthy practices.
