Did you know that on first anniversary of Michelle O’Bama’s “Let’s Move” campaign the President approved the un-restricted commercial cultivation of genetically modified alfalfa. Not a very nice present for the Mrs. I must say. Maybe we should paint some signs and go to the capital do some protesting (like our Wisconsin cousins) -” Just say no to GMO – we won’t go until you say – get GMO out of my hay!!! ”
Let me tell you why Let’s Move and GMO Free Alfalfa matter.
You are what you eat – physically, genetically, spiritually – it all matters to you. What you put in your body matters.
Let’s Move is about making American children fit and healthy and Mrs. Obama knows that the key to this is education and information. The debate is not about whether to eat dessert or not to eat dessert (Maaaah!) It’s about knowing the facts and learning how to make better choices when it comes to food; it’s about being an informed consumer instead of a sheep (Baah!).
By teaching children about healthy choices and providing access to better food (and when we talk about “better” food, we also mean food that we know which means labeling and packaging that fully discloses its contents such as growth hormones and GMO’s) we are protecting our future as a nation. New generations of healthy active kids means American adults who are capable of creativity, innovation, and energetic economic growth rather than being handcuffed by disability, disease and assistance. Knowing how to eat better is a child’s ticket to a better life and knowing what is in the food they choose is their Constitutional right.*
We have grown into a real small business (which is why you haven’t seen too many posts from me lately – too busy helping Laloo!) and we take our responsibility seriously. What happens in Washington has a tremendous impact on our little farm and with all our families who milk for us. We hope you will join us in our little efforts to move public policy in the right direction:
*We are watching the commercial speech case against Taco Bell and see how far the courts will go in letting them continue to use the word “beef” in their products !
