Michelle Obama’s passion for healthy food is well-known to most Americans by this point. For the last several years, she has waged a ceaseless battle against the horrors of “food deserts” and childhood obesity by planting vegetables on the White House lawn, dancing with children at “Move Your Body” events, and chiding soldiers for their eating habits.
Now, the first lady has published a 271-page book on the topic, titled “American Grown.”
In the book, according to the Associated Press, Michelle “holds out the raised vegetable beds on the South Lawn as ‘an expression of [her] hopes‘ for the nation’s children.”
“Just as each seed we plant has the potential to become something extraordinary, so does every child,” she says.
