Even the scoreboards in high school gyms will have to advertise only healthy foods under new rules announced Tuesday by the Obama administration.

Promotion of sugary drinks and junk foods around campuses during the school day will be phased out under the rules, intended to ensure that such marketing is brought in line with health standards that already apply to school foods....

Lol! :D
Perhaps mrs Obama herself is more worthy of vegetable status.

It's always baffled me how simply being married to a president carries a sort of inferred authority, and the ability to affect social policy.

She's done "let's exercise at Walmart" a couple of years ago.

Your comments re the inferred status on First Lady's as social welfare champions is as valid as that afforded to royals as being bright!!

It's all a fiction.

Yes theyre just puppets/actors/spokespersons/PR faces.

This is being done because the think tanks and the people who sit in them want it, not because Michelle Obama wants it.
I remember the good old days, when 90+ year olds in nursing homes lived forever. Darn this pesky virus.
