The Obama Kitchen

During my morning musings on New York Times I came across an article about a woman, Alice Waters, who is at the forefront of a campaign to urge the Obamas to "set an example for the nation on culinary issues like the naming of a White House chef and growing organic vegetables in the White House garden. "

I find Ms. Walter's campaign to be intriguing and worthwhile. So many people look up to the Obamas and they can set a great example for millions of people whose diets are poor. Afterall, 34% of Americans are considered to be obese and 32.7% are considered overweight!

I am convinced that everybody, regardless of their economic status, can eat healthy. It's going to take education and what a better place to start educating than the White House?
