Mrs. Obama's Back To School Message: 'Exciting Changes' In Your Cafeteria

Liz Harrington at CNSNews.com reports that First Lady Michelle Obama touted "exciting changes" in school lunches in a video message.

“And today I want to tell you about some exciting changes that you’ll be seeing in your school cafeterias,” she said.  “Starting this year, the talented people who cook the food at your school will be offering all kinds of healthy, delicious new choices.  Foods that are good for you and that taste good, too. These healthy foods are good for your body, they’ll give you energy and make you stronger and they’re also good for your mind,” Mrs. Obama said.

Mrs. Obama also noted that both she and the president “believe” in the potential of our nation’s school children.

“It’s about ensuring that all of you have everything you need to learn, and grow, and succeed in school and in life because you all are the future of this country,” she said of the healthy food choices.  “And I want you to know that I believe in you.  Your president, President Obama, believes in you, too. “And we want you to be able to fulfill every last bit of your potential and pursue every last one of your dreams.”
