Michelle Obama: I don’t know how to feed my kids – even with my Harvard degree!

In what was perhaps one of the most telling moments in the history of the Obama Administration, First Lady Michelle Obama let the world know just how elitist she really is. In a recent interview with MSN.com, Obama explained she used to struggle with knowing what to feed her children – despite the fact that she received not one but two Ivy League degrees.

“Before coming to the White House, I struggled, as a working parent with a traveling, busy husband, to figure out how to feed my kids healthy, and I didn’t get it right,” she explained. “I thought to myself, if a Princeton and Harvard-educated professional woman doesn’t know how to adequately feed her kids, then what are other parents going through who don’t have access to the information I have?”

On radio this morning, Glenn couldn’t help but be amazed by the latest example of the masks coming off.

“You know what I do? I don’t have a Harvard degree or any kind of degree, so I just feed my kids a steady diet of Twinkies and Ho Hos all day long,” Pat joked. “I’m so stupid, until she tells me what to feed my kids, I don’t know. You just don’t know.”

Stu was particularly struck by the narcissism of Obama’s comment. In her attempt to be relatable, she puts herself in a whole other class of people – those with Ivy League degrees.

“She is so cocky about herself,” Stu said. “’I’m unbelievable. If I can’t do it, imagine what these other idiots are going to do with their kids.’”

“I went to not one, but two elite Ivy League schools, and I don’t know how to do it,” Pat added. “So how can you peons, who don’t have the incredible education I do, how can you everybody begin to cope? So arrogant.”

The First Lady went on to criticize the school breakfast and lunch programs that she believes were subpar.

“It’s so important for our schools to make the hard calls for our kids, because parents are struggling enough at home,” she said. “So once you make that decision to set the rules, you don’t want to be undermined when your kids go to school and have some sweet cereal for breakfast with chocolate milk followed by a donut and then a burger and fries for lunch. That’s why we’re in the state that we’re in right now, in regards to the epidemic of childhood obesity.”

Glenn admitted that he struggles with his own children to ensure they eat as well balanced a diet as possible, it is up to the parents – not the state – to monitor nutrition.

“I struggle with that in my own life. If I let my kids dictate what we have for dinner, it’s French fries, chips, and candy,” Glenn said. “Do you know that the most uttered phrase in my family, I think, is? ‘Eat your chicken’… That’s all I say every meal. ‘Eat your fish.’ ‘Eat your meat’… I do that all day long. My wife does that three meals a day.”

At the end of the day, however, this is all part of the progressive idea that the government and so-called experts know better than you.

“What you feed your kid, how you educate the kid, all needs to be outsourced to experts,” Stu said.

“Because we are too stupid,” Glenn concluded. “It’s not just this Administration. It’s almost all of our politicians now. It really is. Very few of our politicians are really for personal responsibility all the way down the line.”

    As usual, blame it on “circumstances” you know I had a busy travelling husband who was away a lot, to me that should have made it easier ONE less dinner to cook ( should be glad didn’t have to make dog jerky and monkey burgers! The hypocrisy is overwhelming.

  • landofaahs

    That’s true. Harvard degrees don’t mean anything anymore. But my mother knew how to feed children. It’s called a balanced meal. No food is so bad for you that you can’t have it as long as it is in moderation. But then liberals know nothing of moderation. It’s foreign to them and they cannot comprehend it.

    It doesn’t sound like Michelle is elitist, it sounds like she was a busy person and never took any home ec classes at school. There are a lot of people who are around kids who don’t know what to feed their kids. Especially when the kids are picky eaters. Glenn, it sounds like every meal at your house is a battle. It really doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t like it, Tania doesn’t like it and it’s pretty certain your kids don’t like it. Why not tempt the kids into eating by giving them money to buy their own groceries with? Yeah, they’ll start out buying crummy stuff but after a week of having things that way both of them will begin to make good choices. I did that with my niece and nephew and it turned out that my nephew turned into an orange juice fiend. Couldn’t get enough. The only things I told both of them was the “garbage in, garbage out” theory of eating and insisting that at least they have a piece of cheese for nutrition before eating junk. I’ll bet anything that your kids will be asking for ‘hots’n’ tots” ( hot dogs and tater tots) and a fruit cup before too long if you don’t make a big fuss about what they eat for awhile.

    • Anonymous

      Is hot dogs and tater tots supposed to be your idea of healthy?

      • Anonymous

        Not really but it beats candy and sugary stuff at mealtime. Plus, hot dogs and tater tots are kid-friendly and lead to other kinds of food being eaten when kids find out they have responsibility over their own health.

        • Anonymous

          It does not sound like you actually raised any kids but spent a brief time taking care of your niece and nephew. I just don’t think you have alot to offer ; giving kids hot dogs and tater tots is not exactly a revelation to parents and I know my kids sometimes ate stuff like that and other times ate tofu, brussels sprouts, potatoes, salad, etc.etc. Are you assuming most of us give our kids candy for meals?

          • Anonymous

            I used to with that family and stepped in to be a parent type when their mom didn’t want to. Which was an awful lot of the time. But you’re right I’ve never raised any kids. I don’t think parents hand out candy and junk food to them at meal time but it seems like some of you guys think kids will eat badly if left to their own devices. As for tater tots they can be made from whole potatoes. Fact is there are loads of cookbooks on how to make kid-friendly food. Including a series called “Top Secret Recipies” showing how to make healthy versions of meals found in restaurants and fast-food places.

          • Anonymous

            Well I guess a book like that would be useful for someone with extremely picky kids and who actually has time to make those unusual recipes. We were fortunate to be able to just give them regular food. One of my kids has Asperger’s and he had to have all his food “plain” (no sauces or condiments) and not touching each other, etc. when he was younger. But now it seems he eats whatever’s put in front of him, although my husband will still make some dishes separately for him. One thing we did when he and my other son were babies that I think was a good idea, was when they were about 11 months old and started eating finger foods, we gave them cubed, cold tofu (small bite-size pieces) and peas for them to feed themselves, and I admit they ate alot of that. I guess because it seemed they’d be less likely to choke on it than meat. Well, they seem pretty healthy now so I guess it all worked out.

          • Anonymous

            The Top Secret books aren’t just to feed picky kids they’re also used to help people save money because they can make fast food at home and have it be healthier too. The recipes aren’t terribly unusual, mostly just normal ingredients. The secret part is that restaurants don’t talk about how to make the food because they want customers coming in the places. Things only look intimidating. Like for example if you want to make a Big Mac. That’s just hamburger, ketchup, pickles, lettuce and ” special sauce” on a hamburger bun. Easy enough to put together. Know what the special sauce really is? It’s Thousand Island dressing.

            As I said it could be useful for very picky eaters, but most of us never had any interest or reason to replicate fast food at home.

        Not if those are the only things kids are gonna eat. But it beats the heck out of candy and junk food. Hot dogs and tots are kid friendly and easily open the door for kids to eat more grown-up foods when they are ready to. Which usually happens sooner rather than later. Sorry about this second post but I wasn’t sure the first one stayed up.

    • pennyc

      Orange juice fiend – sounds like a diabetic waiting to happen. Can’t even imagine letting kids buy groceries because they will NEVER tire of buying junk or frozen pizzas, potato chips, pop tarts, etc. In the meantime, you have given them a reason to not eat healthy food and turn their nose up at a meal cooked with love by a parent.

        Actually, his mom was too lazy to cook so since he learned how to take responsibility for what foods he ate he took over cooking for his whole family and grew up learning how to be a chef. Don’t know i he stuck with that or not. His dad made some great meals when my nephew and niece had weekend visitations so A meal with love from a parent(as opposed to an aunt)did happen.

      It’s called being the parent, not the BFF.

      Being a parent is being a benevolent dictator. Be kind, but take charge and carry out the plan of the day.

      I was a picky eater who learned how to eat other foods. I’m still a picky eater, but I eat enough around the food groups to make up for not eating “slimy-green-vegetables” or liver. I do like other green veggies…just not the slimy ones. I can live w/o okra, spinach, and kale by eating broccoli, green beans, and peas.

      Do not leave your young children in charge of the menu selection.

      • Anonymous

        Don’t see why not. Learning how to choose menus is part of growing up. Since Glen home-schools not only could learning about food be science lessons and home economics but going to the store to buy it would also teach money management and finance in general. Buying one kind of food over another is probably better at teaching finance than learning how to spend it on anything else because the person is personally involved long term with the outcome

    • Maranda F Lovejoy

      We don’t allow our kids to buy their own food, but they make healthy choices all the time. The would love to live on fruit & veggies all the time. Occasionally they pick junk food, but usually don’t. And hot dogs, along with lunch meat, is by no means healthy for you. Since I homeschool, I do keep some lunch meat in the fridge for lunch but it usually gets thrown out because they would rather eat their healthy left overs.

      • Anonymous

        I’ve heard kosher hot dogs are better for people than the usual kind. Actually, once someone eats a kosher hot dog they don’t go back to the other kind. Especially when you combine it with the way we make hot dogs here in Chicago. Chicago style hot dogs are a garden in a bun.

    It’s simple, Michelle, veggies, fruits, beans, rice, pasta; we had frozen pizza about once a week or two also (’cause I like it and it’s easy). We all lived and they will both eat any veggie put in front of them. It’s not exactly rocket science and I never lost sleep over it. It doesn’t have to be absolutely perfect nutritionally and what she doesn’t account for is the experts’ pronouncements on what is good and bad for you to eat change 180 degrees all the time.

    Very scary. The gov should take all our chidren because we are too stupid to even know how to feed or educate them or teach life skills (finance, sex ed, physical fitness, etc). Only the gov is capable of really knowing how to do these things. As soon as O gets done studying the IRS problem, the Syrian problem, the Iraq problem, he will be able to tackle the big issue of how to raise our children correctly. Unfortunately, as far fetched as this sounds, it is already happening. Look no further than the child taken from her parents because they disagreed with the doctor and the state run child “protective” services.

          The moment we start whispering, “shush”-ing each other, looking over our shoulders from fear, we may as well tear up copies of our Constitution ourselves.

          I am one of those who came to this country to escape such command, control, and dictatorship. It is painful to watch this country start to shrink under the boot of dictators

          If we shrink back in fear, we may as well tell ole Prince Harry he has the right idea in rescinding the First Amendment. Is that *really* what we want???

    Michelle Obama get out of our lives. If you really want to help the welfare folks then teach them that there is life outside the inner city
    I was born in the South Bronx and saw my future if I continued to live there, so I left and discovered that there are so many opportunities outside that small turf I lived in.

    Today I live well through educating myself, my relatives and old friends who stayed are either dead, in a dead-end job, or in prison. Michelle perhaps if you quit feeding these inner city people bull_ _ _ _ they would be healthier.

    She should just shut up and stick to being that lump on Barack’s arm. What people feed their children is what they can “afford” most of the parents out of work are lucky to be able to feed their children AT ALL. She’s got “too many choices” most Americans may walk into the grocery store but they can’t afford to buy everything they NEED let alone simply WANT. If you’re living in your automobile with your family there’s no refrigeration so you tend to buy dry goods that last and cereal has all the nutrients for a balanced diet. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are also good for long term storage. Tell her to recommend her “Ivy League” friends to hire a nutritionist and let THEM feed their children. Schools are ALSO on a “budget” and must purchase for many children and adults. They do what they can with the little funds they have. If SHE can’t do the job then let someone who’s competent do it.

    Common Sense is not taught in the “IVY LEAGUES”. My Grandmother was born at the end of the Civil War–and knew all about Nutrition and Home Remedies. Her knowledge was passed on to children, grands, great grands etc.. It is as up to date as the Harvard Medical Newsletters I read today. Of course, she called Nutrition–“eating right”. She did not even know any “big words”, I’ll bet.. Black people knew bout “eating right”, too.. Canning and drying fruits was big and served with the supper meal during the long winters. .Poor Michelle- no one taught her?

    It’s easy. Ask yourself this question when you grocery shop…Did God make it? Yes = Eat it. No = Eat it in moderation or don’t eat it at all. Very very simple.

    This just goes to show how egotistical she really is. My mother was only able to finish the 3rd grade, but she made sure we had balanced meals. I learned from my mother how to prepare a balanced meal for my own family, not from any school I went to. Didn’t her mother teach her how to prepare balanced meals for the family.

    I didn’t go to Princeton but I was the brown-bag pack your lunch queen. My daughter was a picky eater, wouldn’t eat school lunch. We did tuna salad, crackers, cheese, and some kind of fruit or veggie—-broccoli with ranch…. When I packed blackberries,, i had to send extra the next day because her friends wanted to sample them; had not had them before.

      Right, and maybe she shouldn’t have had kids if she didn’t know how to feed them. It’s maternal instinct!!! Get a life Michelle and leave the rest to ours.

    She obviously knows how to feed herself. Look at that Aunt Ester keister.

    Maybe the DOAg can require a nutrition education class when she signs up for her SNAP card.

    Doo we really know if she actually has a degree or were her records sealed too?

  • Cynde Synakowski

    The mentality of the Obamas has been one of “The average person has no clue how to govern themselves. So we have to do it for them. ” Hmmmm…I wonder if he means me and many, many others who saw through their charade, and didn’t vote for him…or the millions of people who fell for his act, and did?

    Clearly Michelle Obama isn’t very smart if she needs her pediatrician to tell her a twinkie is less healthy than an apple. As a parent I am responsible for teaching my child that food is fuel for the body. Eat healthy and you can expect to be healthy. Eat junk food… When my daughter entered kinder I was appalled at the stuff parents would send to school in their kids lunches. Tons of Lunchables with candy in them, chips and other processed foods. My daughter asked for one to try because all the other kids had it but when I agreed she couldn’t eat because it was so disgusting to her. Somethings you have to let them find out themselves. If you feed good wholesome food they will know the difference. Also, a year ago I took a part-time job to supplement my income at the school during noon hour. The school lunches have improved tremendously with lots of fresh fruit and veggies – our district now buys its strawberries locally and they are delicious.

  • Tom Kerr

    We’ve had chocolate milk, sugary cereals, and burgers and fries in schools since the 50’s but the childhood obesity “epidemic” has only cropped up in the past 15 years or so. The problem isn’t what kids are eating, the problem is “parents” who don’t make their kids play outside. When I was a kid, we got locked out of the house and were forced to play outside. If we got thirsty, we could get a drink out of the hose. When we were allowed to play inside, our video games allowed you only 3 lives to beat the entire game – and you couldn’t save your game either. You could, in theory, pause the game, but then your parents would yell at you and threaten to take your games away because that caused the image to get burned onto your cathode-ray tube TV screen. Now, kids can easily sit on their asses and play a game for 6 hours straight.

      Part of the reason kids are out of shape is because an awful lot of elementary schools have dropped gym and don’t have recess anymore. Also, there is only less than half an hour to eat. Meaning when kids finish going through the food line they grab a table and have to practically inhale their food if they want to have any time taking to their friends. It’s said the less food gets chewed the harder it is to get the energy parts into people’s system the right way. What ends up happening is they wind up looking starved and bloated like people who have malnutrition.There are more fat adults than kids though but that’s for entirely different reasons.

    I would suggest “Our Little Mother” take lessons from the peons of the lands she feels are so much better than the US . . . Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, Sudan, etc. Strange how even in those most “enlightened” and “evolved” countries — oh so better than the US — they know how to feed their children.

    Maybe . . . the reason Our Dear Leader and Our Little Mother are so wonderful is because they are oh-over-educated and cannot possibly imagine how “We the Sheeple” could possibly think. know, and decide for ourselves what *we* think is best for *our* children.

    After all, we’re mere “useful idiots,” are we not?

    Sheesh – ANYONE with an Ivy League degree should know:
    “the regulation lunch (is) a metal pannikin of pinkish-grey stew, a hunk of bread, a cube of cheese, a mug of milkless Victory Coffee, and one saccharin tablet.”
    Victory Coffee a problem for kids? There’s always the Victory Kool-Aid we grown-ups are supposed to be drinking – saccharin and all.

    She spent her time being educated learning about Sol Alinski and how to grab and maintain power. She didn’t spend her time learning about nutrition. Regardless, she has no right to tell others how to eat or how to feed their children, even if she had 3 degrees in nutrition. It’s fine to educate people, but no one has the right to dictate to them or to remove their choices. The decision is up to the parents. The school lunch programs should be determined by the local school districts and boards. It is not up to Washington and certainly not up to Michelle Obama. School board members are voted in by the local voters. Michelle Obama isn’t voted for by anyone. She has no authority and no right to make decisions for anyone but her own family.

  • Carla Mobley Davis

    I managed to feed my kids before she came along and they are happy, healthy individuals. They eat what they like and eat somethings they don’t care for but they know they are good for them. They grew up and are both now over 6ft tall and both are a good weight. I never needed her or anyone like her to tell me how to take care of my family. I didn’t need the schools to tell me either. Schools knew how to feed our kids before she interfered with their menus and and now they have food being thrown away because kids refuse to eat it(the junk moochele is trying to force them to eat). Come on people we need to take back our education system and our kids.

We knew exactly how many serving we needed in each food group every day. Change?????? Why change what has worked so well for so long? Lots of money wasted for nothing.

  • Donni’s Page

    Schools will tell you that they do what they can with the budget they are given. Wealthy schools can afford organic foods. Poor communities cannot. The food providers for these schools are profiteers they really don’t care what the children are eating, just how much money goes into their pockets. So how does a community get involved in ensuring that all the children are fead healthy food??? I don’t care who brings up the subject, I only care about what is going to be done. People are great at pointing out problems, very few are problem solvers. Of the many comments left here, I am surprised by how many people were more interested in snarky comments about Michelle (I am not a political fan fyi) and not one single comnent about how to solve the problem. Moaners, Groaners, whiners, hatemongers. That’s all I see in the media, in washington, in state capitals, in city and county meetings. Where have all the problem solvers gone??? When I have a problem, I look for solutions. By all means, please post yours. I personally think we need to start with federal fund allocation of our tax dollars. Then we need to look at how to support organic farmers so that they can provide us with non gmo processed foods. We need to stop suuporting/buying crap food at the stores so that they realize we want healthy food. Europeans demand it and they’re children eat far healthier than Americans. They would rather spend their money on quality food than and not buy a new iphone every 6 months. Do, the problem starts with our poor purchasing decisions that leaves us choosing poor quality food. If we don’t buy it, they have to give us what we want. Everyone wanted fat free, they gave it to us. We want gluten free they are giving it to us. Go to your stores and tell them you want fresh local organic foods. The more people demanding it, the less it will cost.

    How does she feed herself? What she is pushing for the schools is wrong. I work in a middle school cafeteria. When she cuts out salt, sugar, etc. how are we to make the food taste good so the children will actually eat it and not throw it in the trash. We are limited by so many rules already on what we can add to the food. Most of the children in our school only get the meals we provide. Obama needs to get her head out of her a**, join the real world, actually work in a school kitchen one day w/the peons and eat the food prepared w/o adding anything to it. Most people w/Ivy school degrees have no common sense, and she has proved it.

    Ok, so as a high school student, my major complaint with her comments about the school meals being unhealthy and undermining everything is this, if she has a problem with it, why doesn’t she fix it, like she claims she has already? Also, I would like to point out that her “plan” to stop childhood obesity is lowering the portions and raising the cost of school lunches, I recently went to my area Elementary school, and had lunch with my sister, the portions of the meal we had were the EXACT SAME as the portions I, a now senior in high school, receive at my high school, also, in the last year alone my school’s lunch price increased by 25 cents. Her so called “plan” is to make the students of America anorexic, she is starving not only our bodies but our minds too. I have to spend at least $5 at lunch everyday to feel full and ready for the second half of lunch, so not only is she starving our stomachs and brains, but she is forcing us to empty our wallet, and before any on says just bring a sack lunch, I live with my single motherwho barely makes enough to keep her car and a roof over our heads, but we’re not at the point that my siblings and I can receive reduced price or free lunch, she’s making kids like me all over the United States suffer, because we aren’t rich, and we need food. It’s sickening.

    I myself like my mother and her mother before her feed my children with the love of food. I give my children the proper amounts of veggies, fruits, grains, dairy and proteins that are what our bodies as humans are supposed to have. I have no degree from some prestigious school nor do I have a college degree period. I do know what is good and not good for my children as far a diet is concerned. I love to hear my kids ask for carrot sticks for snack or a salad with dinner! I don’t keep much snack foods in my home nor do i fry food, but when I do it is for treats not meals like salty chips or ice cream. I admit we do occasionally grab burgers from some fastfood although I cook at home more than anything. I teach my children that they may not like the way some foods look but you must try it first before saying “EWWW, I don’t like that!” you never know untill you try! P.S. I have no overweight children!!!

She had no, zero, zilch, nada college degree and was the smartest woman I’ve ever met. I’m now 61 years old, and she’s still my hero.

    (apologies for CAPS, but no italics available for emphasis) Ol’ Mama Obama is 90% wrong from the very start. Improper eating habits, as she’s quoted in saying – “you don’t want to be undermined when your kids go to school and have some sweet cereal for breakfast with chocolate milk followed by a donut and then a burger and fries for lunch.” Sure, you MIGHT PREFER that they ate veggies & fruits like little bunny rabbits. But the fact of the matter is — KIDS just NEED FUEL!!! Basically ANY fuel will do!
    The REAL reason they are Chubb-O’s is because we allow our kids to be sedentary! When I was a kid, we rode our bikes all day after school, except for dinner time, and then again until the streetlights came on. And in the summer, forget lunch! We were playing in the woods on gov’t UNregulated rope swings over sewer/rain overflow creeks, and burning ant hills without the proper permits…

    Lumping Chocolate Milk in with donuts, french fries and pizza is not only stupid, but irresponsible.

      Through history, tyrants have always controlled the food supply.

    So what she is really saying to parents everywhere is that you are too stupid to know how to feed your children and the government knows best..so how do you like that America? Who the hell does she think she is? Well I’ll tell you, she is an impudent elitist imbecile.

    You want to know what is really sad about this. That if Michelle Obama decided to run for the Democratic nomination, she would get it. Because she is Black and a Woman. This truly is a nation of IDIOTS!!!

    While those who understand freedom recognize that democratic methods tend to be aligned with liberty, those obsessed with their own selfish interests realize that democratic methods are susceptible to hijacking.

    I am curious as to why anyone cares about what she thinks or says.

    As a dietitian, I can tell you that there is no such thing as one diet plan to fit all. Leave us alone and let us do what is best for our own families. There are professionals to help you know.

    so many things… where to start?!
    first of all, what information do you have – first lady – that isn’t available through google?

    i’ll skip the whole middle section (anyone reading would anyways)

    lastly: lack of personal responsibility is the root of many of our issues/problems today – until we can get back to taking responsibility for our own actions, we will not see positive, effective, lasting change in the right directions

    I would think a Mother of two children would be embarrassed to state in public that she has no idea how to feed her children. She must thrive on humiliating herself.

    Michelle should be more concerned about what she’s feeding her husband. That scrawny frail body of a man. I saw the workout video and just about laughed. Obama has the physique of a pre-teen girl.

    worry…the chefs at the five star ski resorts and amusement park
    hotels will know how to feed them. In the meantime, they will not learn
    how to feed themselves thanks to you.

    don’t have any children (as opposed to calling them kids because that
    suggests that they are young GOATS) but if I did I would know how to
    feed them! I guess it’s the Democratic way of doing things…needing an
    over-payed committee of dullards to tell me what is the best thing to
    feed my goats on because I lack the wit to figure it out for myself. I
    think that’s what Terry Gilliam is using the “duct” analogy in the film
    “Brazil”. Although he doesn’t go into it, many and different sized
    ducts mean only one thing: REGULATION.

    If so worried why not look at food stamp program You can buy all the junk and cokes you want.

    The Obama’s … everything they own has been given to them and all the problems in their lives are somebody else’s fault

    Now you see first hand what affirmative action gets you. A fake Harvard degree and still a dumb as a bag of rocks black woman. Not even smart enough to feed her own kids. I’m guessing that can be blamed on slavery and racism right?


    Go away idiot.

  • Ryan Crosswhite

    I agree go away you idiot, go advertise on a different thread, maybe one one that nobody gives a sh*t about

    But she has lovely copper toned arms according to some liberal bimbo on TV right after the first election.
