Fibre keeps the digestive system flowing, decreasing constipation. Fibre in fruit and vegetables also has the power to fill up a hungry tummy without a lot of calories. Eating fruit and vegetables everyday helps children and young people grow and develop, boost their vitality and can reduce the risk of many chronic diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, some forms of cancer and being overweight or obese. 1.2 Describe examples of healthy meals and snacks for children and
To whom this may concern, Having a good nutrition in school and elsewhere is essential to students because, by having a healthy body creates a healthy mind, and the school’s school board is responsible for providing students with a healthy education. Tennyson High School have always had, not the best school’s foods around. Even though our school is not in a very well developed environment, I strongly believe students are allowed to know what they are consuming, and how they can manage their eating habits, to become a healthier individual, with a healthy mind for education. With that idea in mind, I would like to propose a solution to that unsetting problem, a “Nutrition Facts” chart, and an end-of-the-day survey about how the food went for that very day. Students deserve to know what kind of food they are eating every day, and how healthy or unhealthy those foods are.
My Life Willie Page PSY 202 Instructor :Diana Donovan February 29, 2012 I never thought at the age of 33 that I would end up back in school again. Once I graduated from high school, I started college majoring in computer science. I started off good until my courses were getting difficult for me. It also didn’t help that I was working as a delivery driver for Pizza Hut. In this paper,I will present a brief description of a few of my life experiences that have helped shape the person I am today and analyze some of these experiences using the adult development theories from this class.
Lotishia Edwards Adrienne Vivian English 1101 September 26, 2012 Don’t Blame the Eater After reading “Don’t Blame the Eater”. I was really concerned, from my understanding most people get obese at a very young age, most time because parents are too busy to just take the time out and cook something for themselves and their kids. Kids spend most of their time and money at a fast-food place because that’s the way they grew up, after eating at a fast-food place all your life it’s really hard to just stop. For Example: if your mother works seven days a week and you have to go to school, when your mother gets home you would have already ate junk food. The best thing for parents, who works long shifts seven days a week, is cook a large sum of
I have family members who are always saying negative things to me like- “It’s too expensive to attend college,” you’ll never find time,” it’s too late,” and etc. I have long separated from some of these family members because I needed boundaries and knew they were not part of my eventual goals for my life. I ultimately knew that if I didn’t separate, my dreams and a piece of myself would die. As a result, I make sure to concentrate my energy on various healthy challenges and this has helped me to forget about the negative words and impacts in my life. Thank God- that I have been able to succeed in most of my goals.
This is due to many reasons, including not wasting time in the morning getting ready, lack of distractions, and a more formal studying environment. School uniforms may significantly reduce the stress of bullying. With students not having to worry about their looks, fitting in not longer becomes the main worry in children‘s lives. School uniforms may also provide a way out for poor children who otherwise
That is why I strongly believe uniforms should be enforced in every school whether public or private. I think that wearing school uniforms would help students do better in school for mainly three reasons. One is because they save valuable time, they can make school a lot safer for everyone, and they save money. First, school uniforms can save time because students, especially girls, don’t have to spend a lot of time trying to choose clothes to wear. In eliminating this time consuming task, students would have a lot more time to do more important things such as eating breakfast in the morning or doing homework.
Proper nutrition starts at home and parents need to learn how they can improve the quality of their children’s nutrition and instill the good habits that will ensure they have the greatest chance for a healthy, successful future. We all want our children to grow up happy and healthy, but we also have busy life-styles and find it all too easy to hit the drive-through before soccer practice or toast a pop-tart to eat on the way to school. We know our kids have access to school lunch, but we can’t always rely on that to be as healthy as we’d like it to be, and we really can’t guarantee that they will eat it. There are so many ads for junk food and fast food and sugary, chemical laden sodas out there, it can be hard to keep kids eating healthy. Children’s bodies are still growing and their brains are still developing, so it is critical that we make sure they are getting the nutrition that they need and develop healthy habits now.
Parents are the main link to children and their health with educators following; as the main sources of our children’s health and well-being, any and all necessary actions should be taken to help children realize their true potential at home, in school and in life. When children aren’t taught how to eat nutritiously, exercise safe and effectively, and succeed academically, they aren’t given a fair shot from the start and that will continue as they grow into adulthood. Children who are obese usually inherit that trait or the behaviors that lead to obesity from their parents/caregivers. They eat unhealthy food and don’t exercise simply because their parents don’t; it can be a vicious cycle that will continue until it’s broken. Parents, unfortunately, don’t
Students need to be well rested and well focused to truly succeed in schools. A poor diet can lead to much fatigue and laziness which causes them to lose sight in what is important, school itself. The place where they should go to learn should be to learn and excel, not eat and fail. Schools should be offering good choices for students. This habit
