MObama Applauds The Olive Garden

Olive Garden Healthy

MMMMMMMM! Olive Garden! Soon to be even healthier!

Not only that, but, some of it's restaurant friends are joining in too — and Mrs. Obama herself is applauding the move!

Michelle Obama said Thursday that a pledge by the Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants and its sister chains to serve healthier meals is a "breakthrough moment" for the industry.

Darden Restaurants Inc. is pledging to cut calories and sodium in its meals by 20 percent over a decade. Among other changes for children, a fruit or vegetable side and low-fat milk will become standard with kids' meals unless a substitution is requested. No more French fries for the little ones unless an adult asks for them.

Here's what the first lady had to say:

"With this new commitment, Darden is doing what no restaurant company has done before. This is a breakthrough moment in the restaurant industry. I believe the changes that Darden will make could impact the health and well-being of an entire generation of young people."

We think this is a fantastic idea too!

As long as they don't change the breadsticks and salad too much! Delicious! Ha!
