Michelle, who works to encourage American children to enjoy healthy eating, recently came under media scrutiny for — gasp! — indulging in a burger craving. She also faced similar criticism for serving burgers and hot dogs at a White House Super Bowl party.
It seems that the First Lady is all about moderation going along with healthy eating habits, telling the magazine:
You can’t say to kids, you can never have a cookie — you can never have anything fun. There’s a way to [promote a healthy life] and to do it in a way that is tasty and fun.”
She also admits that it wasn’t always easy for her and her family to stay healthy:
I had two little kids; I was busy… We had take-out at least three times a week. I didn’t realize that these habits were affecting my kids’ health. It was just what I felt I had to do to survive and keep the household going,”
Michelle, who also promotes youth exercise through her Let’s Move program, also jokes about her workout routine:
I always tease [Barack] I’m in better shape than he is. I can do long workouts. He’s the president.”
What do you Lovelies think about what Michelle had to say?
