Unfortunately, student and parents rely on these lunches because they do not have the income to be able to afford either full-priced or homemade lunches. The only foreseeable way for American students to receive healthier lunches in their school cafeterias is if someone can create a solution to the cost problems. To fully understand the cost problem behind all of this, one must first understand that processed and pre-made foods are much less expensive than healthier, homemade alternatives. For example, if someone was going to make a lasagna dinner for their family they would be much more likely to want homemade lasagna because homemade is always better tasting and also healthier than pre-made frozen lasagna. However, when looking at the cost of both options,
We should care about our environment by ordering smaller amounts of food when in restaurants. Many people in the restaurants order too much food especially in buffets but when they finish their dinner, we can see there are still have some food left on the dishes. I was one of them who always wasted food when I was done with my meal. I didn’t realize that the food I tossed in the trash could impact our environment and lead to pollution concerns. In the book, Bloom said “it’s easier for today’s children to waste food because they are so removed from its origins.” The reason why we waste food easily is we don’t have the chance to plant, water, or nurse the plants by ourselves, so we don’t know how hard it is to plant and grow the food.
In his article “Don't Blame the Eater” David Zinczenko has pointed out that all the fast food industries are the one responsible for making the children's in America fat and unhealthy. Zinczenko believes that the fast food centers aren't providing any kind of warnings about the effects and extra calories that a fast food can cause, instead they are eager to supply their so called “cheap and tasty fast food”. When he was young he had no choice except for eating at fast food centers as his mother was busy earning money to pay the bills because of which he ended up overweight. According to my view, I believe that it isn't the fast food industries who are to be blamed, it is the parents. Eventhough nowadays all the parents have to work long hours to earn their living but still they shouldn't forget their responsibility towards their children.
Assignment 2.1: The Public Needs to Know English 115 02.05.2015 The current status of school meals is that they are full of fat and do not contain enough nutritious value. There are changes that need to be made in order to preserve the health and wellbeing of the children in society. The changes to be made are in the school breakfast and lunch programs. In order to effectively change the program you have to understand the economic issues, the population that is being served and their needs, the process and the benefits of the program. One major economic issue is the rising ate of unemployment.
The poor in this country are not able to afford healthy food, nor are they in the position to spend time exercising, both of which could help reduce their chances of obesity; lowering the cost of healthy foods through government subsides, and creating programs that support healthy living and exercise in poor neighborhoods could be two solutions to this growing problem. The poor are at greater risk for obesity due to their inability to afford healthy food. Healthy foods are more expensive than unhealthy foods and are not as available in low income neighborhoods where the poor often live. Conversely, unhealthy foods are readily available in close proximity to many low income neighborhoods. In a study by Sharkey, Johnson, Dean, and Horal (2011) proximity to fast food was related to the amount of fast food meals consumed by women.
This also will cause future problems, such as closing the sandwich at the end. When someone fails to cut the bread on a 90 degree angle the customer also gets upset because they are buying it and consuming it. When people cut the sub so badly that the bread gets deformed and a hole appears, were forced to waste food and throw the product out. The second step in making a great sandwich is knowing the formula for each sub. The formula for meats is a little more difficult to remember than the formula for veggies.
Many students already have problems with eating healthy, and large corporations such as “McDonalds” or “Jack in the Box” would further promote unhealthy eating, exacerbating an already considerable problem in the United States: obesity. Advertisement in schools can also affect the wellbeing of students by making
If the blame is to be pointed at someone it would have to be the consumer. One reason is that people are not forced to eat these foods. They do not point a gun to our head and demand we eat a half pound burger, a bucket of fries, and a big soda enough to last a whole day. They know it is bad just do not want to make their own food, so they blame companies. Another reason is we have a choice on what we eat on a daily bases.
Have you ever gone to lunch and looked at the options in front of you, dying of hunger, just to realize there is nothing appetizing for lunch today? Constantly, students are running across the problem of going to lunch to leave nearly just as hungry as when they arrived. Lunches at school are not satisfactory to the student population at the school. Who enjoys going to lunch and being served greasy, unappetizing food served in tiny portions that can’t feed our ever growing hunger as teenagers? The school’s lunches are served in tiny portions, are of very low quality, and are offered with hardly any options to choose between.
For example, the food marketing companies usually uses the attractive poster about fast food to get the attention of the kids. Moreover, the author also used some kind of emotional language such as he said that banning the junk food is “misguided and ineffective”.He also tried to give more some reasons to demonstrate that food marketing is not a serious matter of childhood obesity. He said the young people prefer using the internet more than watching TV. In addition, the average number of ads also decreased from 18 in 1977 to 13 in 2003, but he was not right about it. In the
