Weight Issues in America

So Mrs. Obama talked about her children's weight. She is currently talking about how one-third of American children are classified as over weight. During her talks she mentioned that their own family doctor told her that her girls are overweight. Now there is all this buzz about how Mrs. Obama should not have talked about her children's weight and how it will give them a bad image and also open doors for the public to look at the girls.
In my opinion Mrs. Obama is doing the first thing to let American families (and American mothers) know that their children are over weight and it's time to do something about it. As a country we have the most over weight people compared to other countries. We need to learn to eat right and in our busy life this can be extremely hard. Ignoring the problem never helps. I personally believe that weight effects a lot of things. Health care for instance?
Watching Iron Chef I have learned that that First Family has started a organic garden at the White House and food that is being served there is from the garden. How great is that?
Give the First Lady a break peoples!
