Most orphanages do not have a lot of meal choices so I would be eating this meal a lot and you might think that this would get tiresome, but for me it never did. I don’t really know why but I guess it is the ingredients. Plus it was better than eating just soup, which was our normal meal. When I got adopted, I thought I would never have this great meal again. When my new mom made this meal one St. Patrick’s Day, I was in shock.
Ana Rodriguez Apodoca English 12/ period 3 18 March 2013 Final Draft Corn is in everything that we eat today and its becoming much more unhealthy for us. Obesity rates have gotten higher and homes lack home-cooked meals. The way that food processors see it as is its just for a paycheck to get people to buy food that is obviously bad for them. Advertisements have taken over the households of some teenagers and parents giving them the opportunty to give in. While parents are focused on work and hardly having time to cook dinner at homes shools should teach kids how to cook and shop for themselves.
Most students are side tracked by the temptation of buying something out of the vending machine leading to loss of attentiveness towards the teacher. In this situation, vending machines not only have a threat to our student’s education, but they also contribute to the obesity epidemic. A nationwide survey by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, vending machines in middle schools and high schools finds that 75 percent of the drinks and 85 percent of the snacks sold are of poor nutritional value. High-calorie and food that are high in sugar content are low on Vitamin B, iron and other vitamins and nutrients, which can lead to obesity, heart ailments, hypertension, diabetes
In an article called How America’s Children Packed on the Pounds, by Jeffrey Kluger, he digs deeper into the rooted issues of children’s obesity. When and where did it become acceptable to overindulge almost twice the many calories needed to survive in one day? “Obese boys and girls are already starting to develop the illnesses of excess associated
People are also pushing for restrictions to be placed on marketers that target the child audience, while they do not see who is actually buying the unhealthy food for their children. Placing restrictions on advertisement that targets children may or may not aid in reducing the soaring obesity rates since the child’s home life and surrounding advertisements both play a major role in their eating habits. It is obvious that marketing strategies that target children are not the cause of child obesity. Children follow their parents and official data confirms that children follow in their parents’ footsteps, so focus should be placed on the parents, not the advertisements. Passage two also writes that children are less active, and that “limitations on advertisements will not make them any thinner.” These reasons indeed prove why adverts cannot be blamed for child obesity.
In order to be healthier, we can get rid things like Rockstar, and buy less soda. We can also get rid of some our microwavable foods and junk foods. Even with all the junk food and microwavable foods that we have, our refrigerator is full of vegetables and food that is organic. Since my mom doesn’t work, and my dad does, we don’t really have to worry about not expecting dinner to be ready at night since she’s not really all that busy. We get a hot meal every night that my mom cooks for us, and it’s not just microwave this and that, it’s something that is prepared over the stove.
The newspaper by New York Times states, “the costs of obesity, whether in rising health care coverage for companion diseases like diabetes or for wider seats on buses and airplanes, have been documented throughout the course of the nation’s epidemic”(Abelson). Horrible health care leads to problems like this and this is the consequence of being obese. I completely understand how this article examples, “different communities to combat obesity, whether by encouraging more physical activity among their residents or by helping them find healthier food choices” (Abelson). This relates an experience in my life because when I was younger I always went to the park and did some running around activity with friends. Now these days you do not see children on the playgrounds or
I discovered The Best Turkey Sandwich Ever by accident one night while living in New York City. For you see, I was unemployed at the time and didn't have too much money to throw around on food. As fate would have it, on that night, much like on a myriad of countless other nights that had preceded it (and subsequently on many nights thereafter), I happened to be very hungry. In a sad, strung-out, state of desperation, I languidly scavenged my apartment for something to hold me over until breakfast. I found some deli meat, cheese and half a loaf of unwanted challah bread that my sister gave to me last time I bothered to go uptown to visit her.
Fast food restaurants and national chains such as McDonalds are partially to blame. Over the past years NYC board of education has banned sugar carbonated beverages and other foods that have contributed to obesity from public schools. The effects of child obesity in NYC and the nation are plenty. Overweight and obese children are at risk for diabetes, cardiac disease high cholesterol, asthma and shortness of breath. Medical problems can continue into adulthood.
When the number of calories being consumed does not equal the number of calories being burned and the child gains weight this is called energy imbalance (par. 4). And with all the extremely high calorie, high fat foods this is becoming extremely difficult for children to avoid. If parents would limit a child’s access to fast food and junk food and limit their time watching television and playing video games this would help decrease the obesity rate in children. Over the past several years healthy and nutrient rich foods have been replaced by
