Sarah Palin is picking a fight with the US First Lady - over dessert.

In a recent episode of her TLC reality show, the former Alaska Governor mocked Michelle Obama for her efforts to stem childhood obesity, reports the New York Daily News.

"This is in honor of Michelle Obama, who said the other day we should not have dessert," Palin said mockingly as she rummaged through her kitchen cupboards for graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate.

Palin was apparently referring to a speech Obama gave during the NAACP's annual conference for childhood obesity in July, when she said, "As I tell my kids, 'Dessert is not a right.'"

While Obama's program does not explicitly tell parents to avoid dessert, it suggests cutting back on sugar.

It was the second time in a month Palin has bashed the First Lady's calorie-curbing movement.

"What she is telling us is she cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat," she told radio host Laura Ingraham last month.
