Michelle Obama revealed this week that she had co-founded a new business to produce and market better-for-kids food and beverages.
Further, Obama informed that the goods produced would be in such a way that kids’ long-term health is ensured. For example, food items will have less sugar and more excellent vitamin components.
She also said youngsters must consume more nutritional levels and drink too much-added sugar.
Annually, 53 pounds of sugar is consumed on average by children. Sugary drinks are the primary source of sugar.
As first lady, Michelle Obama has always encouraged children to participate more in physical activities.
“So today, I’m proud to announce the national launch of a company designed not just to provide better products but to jump-start what I hope will be a race to the top that will transform the entire food industry. I’ve learned that on this issue, if you want to change the game, you can’t just work from the outside; you’ve got to get inside. You’ve got to find ways to change the food and beverage industry itself,” says Obama.
In addition, Mrs. Obama said that the business will contribute $1 million to a FoodCorps project to provide free school meals and nutrition instruction to all 50 million kids in the United States by 2030.
