First Lady Pushes No Junk Food Ads in Schools

DAYTON -- First Lady Michelle Obama wants to get rid of junk food advertisements at schools across the country. It's part of her "Let's Move" campaign aimed at providing healthy nutrition at school that has been in the works for years.

"As part of this effort, we'll be eliminating advertisements for unhealthy food and beverages in our schools. Because I think we can all agree that our classrooms should be healthy places where our kids are not bombarded with ads for junk food," the First Lady said at a Tuesday news conference.
   
There's never a dull moment during the lunch rush. At the River's Edge Montessori School of Dayton, workers are serving up a choice of burritos or pizza with some nutritious sides.

"They always have great salads available for them, healthy sandwiches, and they do pizza you always have to do pizza for the kids as well. You need to give them stuff that they're going to eat," said Tina Camberos, who has a second grader at the school, and two high school students.

She likes the positive nutrition changes in our schools, the initiative First Lady Michelle Obama started years ago that will be fully implemented for next school year. It includes healthier options both in the lunch line and in the vending machines. It has been costly and time consuming for districts, and Tina wishes there was more give and take.

"One thing I've heard the most complaint is they don't give ranch dressing with everything. Kids love Ranch dressing so with that I'd be like hey, let's give the kids some ranch dressing they'll eat it with their carrots, they'll eat it with their broccoli," explained Camberos.

"They're there for many hours of the day, so if we can give them and provide then with as much information as we can. Hopefully when they go home, it'll carry over," said Becky Gonter-Dray, a Registered Dietitian at Dayton Children's Hospital.

She's encouraged with the changes aimed at slowing the child obesity epidemic. The first lady's latest initiative is to get rid of the junk food marketing. If it is not being sold, why advertise it?

"Providing our children with power and education, this is just going to lead them to having healthier life styles down the road," Gonter-Dray explained.

Tina is on board with this latest plan. "Maybe if it's out of sight out of mind. If they don't want it in the school, maybe that's the best place to start."
