Eat Your Peas… Michelle Obama Downs 1,556 Calorie Lunch at Shake Shack
Eat your peas.
First Lady Michelle Obama may have temporarily forgotten the lessons of her own anti-obesity campaign when she indulged in a sinfully caloric lunch Monday at a popular new hamburger restaurant.
A Washington Post reporter said the first lady ordered a cheeseburger, french fries, chocolate shake and Diet Coke at Shake Shack — a trendy hamburger spot that recently opened an outpost in Washington’s Dupont Circle.
Based on nutritional information on the restaurant’s website, the meal added up to a scale-tipping 1,556 calories.
Obama has made the fight against childhood-obesity a central focus of her White House tenure and launched the “Let’s Move” campaign to promote exercise and ensure children have access to healthy food.
