Michelle Obama has a lot on her mind. According to the first lady of the United States, she's constantly worrying about "every kid in this country."
"[A]s parents, there is nothing that we would not do for our kids -- there is nothing. Not a thing. We always put our kids' interests first," Obama said at a school nutrition event earlier this week. "We wake up every morning and we go to bed every night thinking and worrying about the health and well-being of our kids. I know I do that with my kids, and I do it with every kid in this country."
The event was billed by the White House as "a discussion with school leaders and experts on issues about school nutrition."
Obama praised the experts she was addressing.
"Because of you and your colleagues across the country, today, tens of millions of children are eating healthier school meals that finally meet modern nutrition standards -– standards, by the way, that were developed by experts at the Institute of Medicine, and based on sound science," she said.
