    Michelle Obama: Poor nutrition 'a national security issue'

    Comments (20) By BYRON TAU | 2/9/12 5:59 PM EST
    First lady Michelle Obama said Thursday that poor nutrition in the military was a "national security issue," and praised the armed forces for taking steps to bring healthier options onto bases.

    "Our military leaders know that this is not just a diet issue; it's not just a health issue. This is truly a national security issue," Obama said. "According to a recent Army study, more than a quarter of our nation's 17- to 24-year-olds are too overweight to serve in our armed forces today. And even those who make the cut often struggle in basic training."

    Obama was in Little Rock, Ark. to announce a new healthy food initiative within the Department of Defense that will bring more whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat options to 1,000 military dining facilities, affecting nearly 1.5 million troops.

    "That means more DoD installations will offer the kind of fresh, healthy food that the Air Force's Food Transformation Initiative helped bring here to Little Rock," Obama said, referring to a pilot program launched at the Little Rock Air Force Base.

    "The DoD is also going to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of every single military base in America to make sure they're serving healthy food not just to those in uniform, but to their families," the first lady said. "They'll be looking to improve the food served in dining facilities, school cafeterias, vending machines, snack bars, and any other places where military families purchase food."

    The first lady's visit to the base also included a tour of the dining facilities and a meeting with military brass who told her the DoD was "working hard to make healthy eating sexy."
