Awesome! I hope it'll remain civil on what the first lady is promoting--health for kids.  But, judging from the first question, maybe not. Scary people out there.

I just noticed it's on the In the News board.  To be unbiased:smileywink:, wouldn't it make more sense for her to answer questions on health and exercise here on this board?

lol I would have loved to have had her on this board!

I am seeing some really interesting questions popping up now so be sure to add your questions too.

Yes!  Questions are getting better.  I have a million but will narrow it down to a manageable number. I would love to be on a policy board for healthy living!

That IS awesome.  I think it will be challenging for the moderators to keep it focused on families getting back to to school.  Good luck, and let us know how we can be of assistance if need be.  :smileyhappy:

lol. Be sure to add your own questions to the thread. I honestly can't wait to see what she has to say about some of the back to school/health topics.

Yeah, I was wondering if they'd be filtering the questions because she's too busy to be answering some of those inane questions but there were some good ones on kids, school, health.  Although, I have to say, if I had a chef and a gardener and personal trainer, it would be a heck of a lot easier!:smileylol:
