Michelle Obama is getting sick and tired of childhood obesity and thinks you should be, too.

To combat this growing epidemic, Obama recently unveiled the “Let’s Move” plan — an initiative that includes educating parents, encouraging young people to exercise more and improving school lunches. The administration is requesting $10 billion over the next ten years through the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act to improve the National School Lunch and Breakfast program.

Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) nutritionist Kathryn Strong and director of Public Affairs Elizabeth Kucinich are in favor of the additional funding and have their own ideas about the best way to make American children healthier.

Strong suggests one huge step the government could make towards a healthier future is to cut subsidies to the meat and dairy industries.

Kucinich agrees and thinks it’s crucial to “incentive healthy foods,” and focus on the quality of the meals served in cafeterias. “What is the cost to the nation if we don’t [consider it]?” she said.

Here at the Razz, we’re crazy about PCRM and think they’re on the right track to making America healthier. To learn more about their important work, visit PCRM.org!
