Michelle Obama hopes to have the US military lining up for salads and hydration stations in lieu of snacks, red meat and soda pop.
Her healthy eating habits campaign has now come to warning labels on foods such as desserts and fried foods which are disappearing from the military menu in Ft. Jackson.
Soda machines on bases are being replaced by hydration stations.
Foods are color coded according to their nutritional merit, something I did with my grammar school children.
