Lunch is an important meal of the day and many children eat it at school. It helps our bodies and brains grow and develop into the way that they are supposed to by boosting our metabolism and giving us energy for the rest of the day. But it's probably one of the biggest problems in schools throughout America. We are told to eat healthy and good but we cannot always do that with the choices we have at the school. Students are being fed unhealthy lunches at school cafeterias simply because it is cheaper to produce unhealthy processed foods so alternatives and healthier food go away.
It is also very important to know how to make good decisions, and by choosing what you want to eat gives us a great opportunity to learn. So, I think we should keep junk food sold in school, because there are more varieties of food. My second reason of why I opposed the removal of junk food is that junk foods are convenient and delicious source for a quick snack. Usually, we get tired from work outs or after school activities like varsity
Obesity in kids Parents, have you ever imagined your child to be so fat, that he might get bullied at school and not be able to play sports with other children? Have you ever imagined them sitting in a corner crying for not finding their usual size at a clothes store? Help to stop that and look up to the factors that cause this. Fast food restaurants and the increase in chocolate factories are causing an increase of obesity in children. Many countries are trying to do something to make their children’s life healthier by promoting healthy food and diets campaigns.
We have a crisis on our hands with childhood obesity on the rise. Two main causes for the fattening of our children are junk food and sugary sodas. Junk food and soda often take the place of healthy foods in our kids’ diets, something that most school systems should be ashamed of. School lunches are a cause of childhood obesity in America, at least in U-46 schools. In order to put an end to childhood obesity, the schools needs to prepare a healthy yet balanced diet for all kids, by serving them with good food that is full of nutrition.
To continue the promotion of the value of nutrition through education, eating right, and exercise, the removal of snack and soda vending machines should be removed. The first reason snacks and vending machines should be removed is because it goes against everything the schools are teaching about eating right and healthy food choices. “We are supposed to be teaching proper nutrition in schools , and having a vending machine inside of the school doesn’t make sense “said Joel Fuhrman, M.D,; a Board Certified Physician. Kids are being taught in health class how consuming a lot of junk food, and no exercise can cause many health issues like a
This will result in improved, healthier lunches and breakfasts around the country. Although many healthy, nutritious foods may not be the tastiest, the government should impose restrictions on what kind of foods can be served in cafeterias because they choose foods that are nutritious for children, and more than one in three of children in the United States are obese and need to be healthier. What are the most delicious foods to students? Well, the foods that students enjoy eating the most may not be allowed to be severed at their lunch. This is due to the fact some of the most delicious foods are the unhealthiest.
What groceries to purchase, what groceries are unhealthy to purchase when grocery shopping. And last, but not least control and watch what goes into your child’s body, and what should not enter into your child’s body. I also plan to create a fun way of introducing good eating habits that parents can share with their children. How can we make eating healthy fun for our children as well as ourselves. Eating can be made fun.
According to Pierce Hollingsworth (2004), the parents and school should not blame the food marketing for being the main cause of obesity rather than teaching and helping the kids to have good habit of eating. He thought that the responsibilities of the parents and schools were important for educating childhood obesity. However, there are so many problems with his arguments. He did not think about the bad effects of advertising on kids. For example, the food marketing companies usually uses the attractive poster about fast food to get the attention of the kids.
When you eat in this way, your body will stabilize at its natural weight. 2)Myth: I can stop my body from adding fat cells by eating less. Fact: Around puberty, girls will find that their bodies develop fat around their hips, thighs and buttocks. This is supposed to happen, even though there is much pressure in our culture to stay thin. When you try to stop this process by restricting your food intake, especially during adolescence, your body is programmed to think that you will not be prepared for child-bearing years.
As a result, his own recommendations include: limiting the consumption of sodas, junk food as well as avoiding a sedentary lifestyle. Weintraub's argument is that parental responsibility in food choices and physical activity over kids will result in combating childhood obesity, rather than only blaming the fast food industry by itself. To concur with Weintraub, it is the parent's responsibility to combat childhood obesity, although fast food industry also shares the responsibility. It is the role of the parents to instill good eating habits and to serve as role models for their children. If the kid has no medical reason for gaining weight then it seems acceptable to blame the parents.
