While Michelle Obama may have wanted to keep children healthy, she didn't really help out with helping kids learn to make healthy decisions. Well intentions, poor execution. Her plan focused on trying to make the decisions for children. While I do know that kids need to be given healthy options, they should also be given choices so they KNOW to choose those healthy options. When Michelle Obama started pushing the classic liberal ideology of regulation, regulation, regulation on school lunches, there was nothing but backlash. The quality of food dropped notoriously low, while Michelle Obama's kids got the benefit of catered lunches at the private school they went to. Rather than make healthy options look more attractive, Michelle Obama did the opposite-I tasted fast food and when compared to what my school served me, McDonalds looked like McRamsays. Honestly, I rarely bothered to watch what I ate in high school-for me, I was just like "PCCHHHT. The government is making all the decisions for me. Why should I bother to make healthy choices if I have no choice?" I learned to adore fast food, rather than deplore it. It's not just the intentions (which are VERY difficult to determine, I'm just ASSUMING her intentions were good), it about developing plans that work and are acceptable and logical-heck, the fact that Michelle's kids were not affected or probably even influenced by her plan probably speaks how crappy it is.)
