From Politico:

"First Lady Michelle Obama plans to warn in remarks Monday that the nation is seeing “a groundswell of support” for curbing childhood obesity, and she is unveiling new ammunition from current and retired military leaders."
“[M]ilitary leaders … tell us that when more than one in four young people are unqualified for military service because of their weight,” the first lady says in prepared remarks, “childhood obesity isn’t just a public health threat, it’s not just an economic threat, it’s a national security threat as well.”

The Child Nutrition act signed into law today will tell your child what he or she can and will eat. Bake sales could possibly be banned from school property.

"This could be a real train wreck for school districts,” Lucy Gettman of the National School Boards Association said Friday, a day after the House cleared the bill. “The federal government should not be in the business of regulating this kind of activity at the local level.”

Progressives want to intrude in every aspect of your life, but they are so well meaning. I mean good intentions in all that. Never mind choice and freedom is being abridged right before our eyes. Government knows best. We should just give them our children at age 2 and we can get them back after say age 18. They will be good little citizens by then.
