Bob Cutler, CEO of Creative Consumer Concepts (C3), said that the food industry is getting singled out. "We are all for the common sense approach as long as it does not restrict free choice and embraces the idea that consumers are intelligent and capable of teaching children how to live a healthy, balanced life. Kucinich and the government should not be given the power to restrict our right to choose what we want," said Cutler.

Michelle Obama did talk about topics such as healthier food in schools, physical activity, the importance of family and access to fresh and affordable foods. According to a Huffington Post article (http://tinyurl.com/2vmbp7x), Kucinich alluded that Obama supports the specific issue that taxpayers are subsidizing the spread of childhood obesity.
