J.O. Defends M.O., Calls Sarah Palin a “Froot Loop”

by Bettina Elias Siegel on February 28, 2011

Well, this put a smile on my face on a Monday morning.

In a recent interview with Associated Press Food Editor J.M. Hirsch (TLT’s friend from “Lunch Box Blues” and High Flavor Low Labor), celebrity chef Jamie Oliver had some choice words for Sarah Palin for criticizing Michelle Obama’s anti-childhood obesity efforts.

According to the AP interview, reprinted at the Huffington Post, Oliver said the U.S. is in a “really dark moment” when it comes to children’s health, and that getting healthy foods to kids is a civil rights issue.

He said he doesn’t have much faith that government will lead the way, but said the Obama administration is on the right track.  Palin, in contrast, “clearly on this issue is a Froot Loop,” he said.

Well put, Jamie!
