Why is Michelle Obama praising Wal-Mart in Springfield, Mo.?

Of all the Wal-Marts, in all the towns, in all the world, first lady Michelle Obama on Thursday walked into the Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market in this southwest Missouri college town where a battle has raged over whether to allow the chain to build a store in the historic downtown.
She was in Springfield on the final stop of a two-day, three-city tour to mark the third anniversary of her Let’s Move! campaign to help fight the rising epidemic of childhood obesity.
Standing in front of a picture-perfect pyramid of shiny limes, oranges and lemons, with bottles of salad dressing and bags of salad lined up behind her, Obama praised Wal-Mart for its efforts to make healthy food affordable for families. Her remarks echoed what she wrote in an op-ed piece for the Wall Street Journal Wednesday: Healthy food is not only good for families but good for business.
