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,
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
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.
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.
Even though some countries are not lacking farm land or water to grow food, malnutrition occurs simply due to the lack of education on nutrition and healthy eating. Keep in mind that malnutrition is not only the lack of food, but it is also the lack of nutrients in unhealthy eating. Obesity is a growing problem even in developed countries. Only is it through education and awareness that we have hope in the future to help conquer malnutrition. How has Right to Play tackled malnutrition?
Submitted by: John Kenneth J. Fernandez Submitted to: Maam Lua Burias Thesis Statement: Although junk food is convenient, inexpensive, and is basically a cultural phenomenon, we as a society need to stop eating junk food because it has increased health problems, has taken away from family core values, destroys the environment, and has created a food economy dominated by giant corporations. I. Introduction What is Junk Food? The term “junk food” is used to describe food which is low in nutritional value, with a comparatively high caloric value. Many people try to avoid or limit junk food in their diets, out of concerns that such food is not healthy, despite the fact that numerous food manufacturers produce a range of products which could be considered junk food.
As the students’ lives change, it is especially difficult to find time for personal care. When students are forced to choose between taking the time to cook healthy food and eating healthy or grabbing a quick meal at the dining hall, the usual choice is to grabbing something fast. Lifestyle puts young students at risk for health issues in the future, and short term weight gain. Living on campus, in particular, forces students to eat unhealthy food, which will end up hurting their bodies. Dining hall food has no benefits; unlike home cooking that has better quality, taste, and health benefits.
In addition, without the supports and supervision of our parents, this can corrupt our kids in many ways in their behavior, relationships, and possibly ruining the life. After work or dinner, spending rest of the evening parked front of the T.V does not help burn calories much at all. In addition, people consuming high calorie snacks during T.V time can cause health problems in the long run. It's also been a problem that more and more of younger generation consuming too many hours T.V causes obesity, and obesity has been proven to be the one of leading causes of death in the United States.

Imposing higher taxes on junk food will not encourage healthy eating. Taxes don’t stop people from buying things that satisfy them. By restricting dietary choices Americans will not suddenly know the difference between junk food and health food. The government cannot appropriately regulate and restrict improper consumption in people’s homes; they need to keep their hands out of Americans pockets and start fighting obesity through educating adults and their children on proper nutritional routines. Imposing a junk food tax draws attention to one of the most imperative questions which is how to define foods as unhealthy.
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.
