Your questions for Michelle Obama
Will changing the fry sizes at McDonalds help end child-hood obesity?
Hello Mrs. Obama!
I respect you as a person and I'm glad you want to make a difference in the fight of child-hood obesity!
In the happy meals, the customer now receives a 'baby' fry instead of a small fry and apple slices with no caramel dipping sauce.
I know those changes will reduce the calorie intake for that child but does that really make a difference? The parent has the option to say no apples and upgrade it to a small fry.
My question for you is: How big of an impact has those changes helped the fight to end obesity? What feedback have you received? Also do you plan on returning the caramel sauce? (I miss it!) Lol
Thanks for your time!
