Walmart Gives Credit to Michelle Obama for Stocking Healthier Food

January 22, 2011

Here’s my latest effort with text to animation. I did this one for cnn ireports.

If it looks easy, believe me it isn’t. But it is fun.

I think First Lady Michelle Obama deserves kudos for her campaign to end childhood obesity and to promote healthy eating.

 Thanks for watching!

    Rosie, love the whole virtual thing, very clever on your part!!
    Now to the issues….hmmmmm
    Have you shopped at Walmart lately? Everything just about is made in CHINA….and In the fresh produce section, almost all comes from Mexico….no US FDA over that stuff…..
    Also what good does it do to provide “healthy” foods if the kids refuse to eat it? Is it better for them to go hungry or eat at least something to keep them going thru the day?

    hey lisa! thanks for your comment.

    Yes, I have shopped at Walmart. I only go in for a specific item that I can’t get anywhere else in my small town. I rarely buy produce there and I try to buy organic products when I can and Walmart has limited choices there.

    As for kids going hungry, I think we need to begin when they are young. parents need to be educated about serving nutritious foods. People who are raised on healthy foods prefer them to processed. Kids adapt. The school I worked at put in a salad bar and it was very popular. A lot of kids love fruit.

    Kids will stop refusing it if they have no other alternatives. I think they do need to work on reducing the waste. Kids shouldn’t be served food they are going to throw in the garbage.

    The days of Mom staying home and cooking nutritious meals, while big daddy brings home the bacon are just about gone….it takes both parents to make the bills and the rent these days.
    Super Mom’s can only handle so much before they snap! So we live in a fast food–rat race of a society where everything is set up to get it right now! Not wait for 3 hrs for the food to get ready after a hard day at work.
    The Communist agenda saw to that for sure. Destruction of the family—yipee for women’s so called equality! –it has done nothing but destroy our social and moral base in America.
    And as a mom, I really don’t need the government to tell me how to feed my kid’s, what they have done to this nation is damned well over the top—if they really wanna make a difference, they would stop out sourcing American jobs for one and make it where the MAN can bring home a salary equal to what it would be if the wife also worked, so SHE could choose to stay home and take care of the kids and then feed them nutritious meals like in the old days.
    Dang—one would think I felt strongly about this subject huh?–lol…
    Okay, salad bars with fruit—I can see that as a good thing, wonder what country it was shipped in from tho? Mexico is not on my list of good food to eat nor any foreign country.

    Our food supply should be guarded and watched so contaminates can not enter through from foreign sources….I’m not talking regulation, just NOT importing all our food from outside our country.

    Here’s another health issue, FLUORIDE and Isotopes in the drinking water—think that grand arrogant First Lady could put a stop to that evil? Or even care they are doing it?
    Or what about the mercury they slip into those public school required inoculations which has been proven to cause Autism and other brains defects/disorders?
    We are talking about saving the children right? Or maybe just taking more control from the parents by the federalist?
