Now my leg has been really pulled

The first liar – er – lady Michelle Obama has boldly claimed a 43% reduction in child obesity in just 4 years! She touted this number while commemorating the 4th anniversary of her very own “Let’s Move” campaign to eliminate childhood obesity. 43% reduction? In 4 years?? Because of her program??? Obesity specialists have taken a closer look at this purported data while pointing out that large studies don’t find a decrease in obesity among preschoolers – but rather an increase. According to Reuters, the study Michelle quoted credited changes to the federal nutrition program for low-income people, the “elimination” of trans-fats from fast food (when did that happen?), more physical activity in child-care programs and declining consumption of sugary drinks – in a small, selected group of children. Pardon my blatant disrespect here but I’m thinking Deja Moo peeps.

Who is feeding these kids?
