One of the main things schools need to do is to stop adding so much salt on to the meals because salt is super unhealthy. You should let the kids add salt if they need it. Salt is only good when there is a little bit on the food but when there is a lot, it is a problem. People believe that if the food on the plate looks good kids will eat it. So some
For instance, losing energy, feeling sick, might faint. People usually lie to their body every day by eating stuff that they are not supposed to do is because they do not know what they are really eating. Some people do not really care what they are eating as long it’s delicious, they would accept it. As matter fact, people worry more about their daily task than eating appropriately. In his article,” In defense of food “: Michael Pollen established “what is food” and why do American’s eat nonfood in such large quantities?” Definitely, I’m agree about food labels do provide enough information for consumers to make an informed choice about what to feed their bodies.
I disagree completely that we as Americans suffer from lack of information about nutrition in fast food. Every capable adult knows that eating anything in a fast food restaurant is bad for you. They need to stop being lazy and letting their kids eat fast food frequently, especially if their kids are not very active. It is the responsibility of the parents to feed their kids three healthy meals a day and to make sure that they are maintaining a healthy diet. I do not believe that if fast food industries started putting nutrition labels on their food that it would have a significant difference on the amount of food that people eat.
They are making comments such as, "The problem of obesity is so staggering, so out of control, that we have to do something." There is something this person can do to fix this problem of obesity. This person can stop blaming the restaurants, stop eating at the restaurants, start making healthy decisions, and exercise. If not, then this person can keep making the decision of eating there and getting fat, but not sue the restaurant because this is a decision he has made. Fast food restaurants dont force the clients to buy and eat there.
Corporations make us fat Many people claim that it is personal responsibility of what you eat, however fast food corporations and their marketing strategies make it almost impossible to say no. From childhood we are conditioned to grab a large combo meal on our way home instead of going to the grocery store then cooking it ourselves. The ease, convenience, and the cheap prices make it all too easy for consumers. Corporations are to blame for America’s obesity problems because of their lack of nutritional information available to consumers, their lack of alternatives, and their brand recognition and advertisements addicting us from childhood. There is no calorie information posted in any fast food restaurant.
The Fast Food Industry is responsible for obesity in America as they have many fast food restaurants typically many within a small radius providing cheap easy solutions to societies hunger. David Zinczenko, a writer for The New York Times, describes marketing powers in his assessment "Don't Blame the Eater" he states that just about all fast food restaurants falsely advertise their foods and pass to many as a "healthy" meal choice but little do people know is that they are still extremely unhealthy foods that should not be included in anybody's diet what so ever. There has been many varieties of marketing techniques developed over the years of the fast food industry's attempts to persuade others to eat at their establishments. The fact that the foods they are extremely unhealthy for people of all ages from kids to adults is helping to cause obesity throughout America although some may be aware of the risks the average American still continues to eat out at fast food establishments along with the family giving the fast food industry a chance to get the entire family hooked for life. Going to fast food restaurants to prove his theory about how horrible fast food restaurants are for the human body.
In “The battle against fast food begins in the home” by Daniel Weintraub he is stating that parents are at fault for children’s obesity and their eating habits. Weintraub also says that the food companies shouldn’t be blamed for people gaining weight and becoming unhealthy by eating their food all the time. In this article Weintraub is blaming the parents which in my opinion is correct for him to do that because parents should teach their children what to eat and what not to eat. I don’t understand how people could blame a food company for making them fatter. That is absurd; if people don’t want to gain weight then they shouldn’t eat there or allow their children to eat there if they are going to complain about it.
Childhood Obesity Epidemic Everybody is always talking about childhood obesity in the Houston. They say we feed our children junk food, and that they get very little playing time outside, but do you know that childhood obesity happens not only in the Houston but all over the United States? Even in some other countries. The childhood obesity rate has climbed in other cities such as St. Louis, Great Britain, Washington D.C, and Philadelphia. But the main question this paper will answer is, “What causes the childhood obesity rate to rise in these different cities and how can we prevent them?” As we know the main causes to obesity is lack of exercise or poor eating habits, but in these different cities those aren’t the only reasons that childhood
Cynthia Torres Don’t Blame The Eater This short reading was mainly about how teenagers and young children are always eating unhealthy food verses eating healthy food then turn to become obese, ill, or even gaining diabetes. In response to this issue angered parents are then pursuing a lawsuit against fast food restaurants for their children in having these issues. I believe this is utterly ridiculous, only because I don’t think it’s the child fault that they are getting in these sticky situations. I believe it is the parents’ fault only because people do not all of a sudden get obese from eating one hamburger, it takes time, and over that time there is a visibility in the body that changes. Parents should see these changes and realize
Many people believe that it is not the responsibility of the food industry that obesity is becoming a serious issue because it is based on sole responsibility of what they choose to eat, whether they choose to exercise or not, and in the case of child obesity, the lack of responsibility the parents maintain; and the food industry concurs when addressed by the government. They are very defensive when they are resistant when the government tries to restrict the food industry from marketing to children in Australia. Legislation has begun to have fast-food restaurants display the nutritional
