Michelle Obama has done a marvelous job in her efforts to educate the young people of America on the benefits of exercise and healthy eating. It is so important to teach kids at young age about these benefits. Kids are highly impressionable when they're young, so there isn't a better time. NYC has tried to implement soda bans to no avail, which isn't a surprise. People are very set on there ways, especially later in life. The familiarity and comfort of soda can't just vanish into thin air. What Michele is doing is providing a better option for kids so they will hopefully make good decisions down the road. If kids grow up drinking soda, then odds are they will only continue in the future. However, if kids develop drinking water and understand how sugary drinks are unhealthy, then they will be set up for success rather than failure. Health education for kids is important. We are starting to see a more of a consorted effort to eat healthy foods and drinks. Michele Obama and her agenda is a great reason for why this happening.
