Over the weekend, First Lady Michelle Obama answered several questions from CNN iReporters, who peppered her with queries on various subjects, including her ‘Let’s Move’ initiative fighting obesity in America. CNN iReporter Shari Atukorala, from Sri Lanka, asked the First Lady whether she would allow her daughters to eat fast food, specifically “a huge burger…french fries (and) fried chicken” or if they were only allowed to have healthy food.
“Malia and Sasha are like every kid in America, if they could eat burgers, fries, pie, cake and ice cream every single day, they would, because that stuff tastes really good,” Mrs. Obama explained. “I’d eat it too if I could!”
“What we try to practice and what I try to teach our girls is balance, but it takes a lot of determination, a lot of will-power,” the First Lady continued. “We have very clear expectations in our house and sometimes no has to be no.”
The First Lady also answered questions on her favorite ways to stay fit (“Turning on the radio and dancing is a lot of fun”), the President’s favorite snacks (he has a weakness for guacamole and nacho chips), and how she balances being the First Lady and a mother and wife.
