Dr Oz: Whole Grain Pizza Dough for Kids

Before Meal: Cheese pizza on white dough, tater tots and chocolate milk

After Meal: Cheese pizza on whole-grain dough, baked sweet potatoes and veggies. JT, a student, immediately chowed down on the pizza. (I guess he liked it.) Michelle got him to put down the pizza long enough to try the sweet potato fries. He liked them too but went back to the pizza.

Dr Oz asked JT if he had a question and he wanted to know if the First Lady got scared sleeping at night in the white house alone? She answered that she was surprisingly at home in the white house. Besides, they were never alone so she felt safe there. (Didn’t you love how he continued to eat the pizza while she answered?)

  1. TwinsWithCFMom says

    My twins have cystic fibrosis and keeping weight and bmi up on the nutritional scale is a very huge problem, matter of fact their life depends on it. Extra calories, fat, and protein is mandatory in kids with CF, or their lungs and vital organs could not maintain. Mrs. Obama, not all children need to loose weight and your simply not thinking about us who have children with life threatning diseases who have to eat at school. Matter of fact, I have to send extra calorie snacks between school lunch. Cystic Fibrosis is life threatning and cutting calories at school would put my twins in a more dangerous health condition. Have a happy medium here, help the underweight and help the overweight. Just my two cents from a starving mom who needs my children to stay as healthy as possible for their short life.
