ABC News’ Mary Bruce (@marykbruce) Reports:
Just hours after President Obama told lawmakers it was time to “eat our peas” and reach a deal on the deficit, the First Lady was spotted doing just the opposite. Mrs. Obama was seen indulging this afternoon in a colossal 1,556-calorie meal at the Shake Shack, according to the Washington Post, which spotted the First Lady at the newly-opened D.C. diner.
The First Lady, a well-known advocate for healthy living and child nutrition, reportedly ordered a ShackBurger, fries, chocolate shake and a Diet Coke.
While Mrs. Obama has made it her personal mission to eliminate the problem of childhood obesity, she has also admitted that it’s ok to treat oneself so long as it’s in moderation.
"I love burgers and fries, you know?” the First Lady told ABC News' Robin Roberts last year. “And I love ice cream and cake. So do most kids. We're not talking about a lifestyle that excludes all that. That's the fun of being a kid. That's the fun of being a human.”
