‘Out of the mouths of babes..’ goes the famous saying.  And it took an 11 year old to challenge the White House’s “Food Crusade.”

In a video released Monday, an 11 year old reporter for Scholastic News in Florida actually challenged First Lady Michelle Obama in a recent interview about her food crusade.  Michelle Obama has been traveling the country pushing her Let’s Move program which emphasizes exercise and play for children, but also beating Americans over the head with her ideas for what children should and should not eat.

   11 year old Topanga Sena, the student reporter, asked the loaded question:

“How do you respond to critics who say the government should not be telling people how to eat or to stay active?”
