Today, things are different. Wholesome, nutritious food is king at the Obama White House, and the first lady has made a point of saying so. While Laura Bush made many of the same requests for "fresh, organic food" privately, Michelle Obama is using her influence as first lady to educate the public about healthy eating.
We've already blogged about President Obama's commitment to fitness, and news outlets can't stop talking about Michelle's toned biceps--dubbed Thunder and Lightning by one columnist. But all jokes aside, I'm truly encouraged by the Obamas' efforts. Education has made the corporate world healthier, and I'm convinced that it can do the same for our nation.
