Michelle Obama is getting the blame for the Navy’s decision to ban fried foods from their culinary offerings.
According to Vocativ, “The First Lady doesn’t set nutrition policy for the nation’s fleets. But that hasn’t stopped more than two dozen critics—many of them current and former Navy personnel—from flooding a Navy Times Facebook thread to blame FLOTUS, who has made combating obesity and promoting healthy eating her signature issues.”
Some of the feedback includes, “Is Michelle Obama now playing big sister to the military hotline?” and “First the kids, now the troops.”
“Seriously. Sounds like MICHELLE OBAMA strikes again,” a said another.
The Navy Times reported that there will be no more fried chicken, french fries and shrimp. Instead these foods will be baked in “state of the art ovens.”
“Whole milk will be replaced by skim and soy; fruits and vegetables will be on prominent display,” the report noted. “The fast line will remain, but its offerings will be cut back.
“And this is just the beginning.”
The healthy “Go Green” campaign is set to become the standard for mess halls both on land and sea.
The new menu is set to take effect in 2017.
