These problems can be fixed by doing some things like restrictions, monitoring, and SNAP rules and regulations be revised. First off, food stamps allows more people to become obese. Food stamps does not have any guide lines on nutrition. This means that families can by unhealthy foods like cookies, donuts, and soda. Also food stamp participants can use there food stamps to buy food from McDonald's.
Eleazar Almazo October 2-10, 2012 Hunter Writing Soda Ban: Against The NYC government should not ban drinks larger than 16 ounces. For example, Arizona would be banned. Mayor Bloomberg stated you can buy the little soda drinks that when you add the calories, they equal the same as the big sodas. Even though I oppose to Mayor Bloomberg’s action, I get what they are saying. It higher the sugar which increases fat but it makes no sense buying 2 or 3 little bottles that can equal the same amount as the big cans.
They decided not to upgrade the fast food standers. They feel that if a consumer feels it is far too unhealthy for them they won’t eat it. They claim that if eaten in moderation fast food is not unhealthy at all. If a person exercises regularly like they should an occasional fast food visit won’t hurt them at all. They thought it wasn’t there place to tell the company to make better healthier food, they feel that’s like telling each individual to eat healthier, this is basically telling them what to eat.
Parents are the ultimate authority when it comes down to what their children eat. Of course they can’t all always see what their children eat, but if they teach them healthy eating habits they’re less likely to go for the wrong food choice. (junk food) “encourage these kinds of simple polices in the home, they might make some progress against the purveyors of fat food and cholesterol.” (Wientraub paragraph 6) Parents tell their children what to eat from birth they might as well teach them healthy eating habits. Exercise should be an essential part of life. Parents should teach their children good exercise habits as well.
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
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.
Because of their unhealthy food Choices and misplaced priorities, they purchase the types of food that are not nutritional for their families. For instance, unfortunately under the current food stamp program, there is absolutely no stipulated regulation that forbids benefit recipients from purchasing a certain kind of food for themselves or their household, even though the basic nature of the program is to aid individuals and families maintain a healthy balanced diet by bringing about better nutrition through the food stamp program. Under the food stamp program people can basically buy any kind of food they want as long as it is not a hot food such as from a restaurant or fast food. That being said, one topic that pops up several times seems to indicate a concerned against individuals who use their food stamps benefits to buy large quantities of food with limited nutritional value, and also those who use food stamps benefits to buy foods like soda, chips, candies and then use their personal cash to purchase lottery tickets, cigarettes, alcohol and some non-food
I am writing in regard and regret to the Pet Friendly policy established in February 2000. Effective May 1, 2014 Wilkerson Enterprises have decided to discontinue the support of the pet friendly policy and to ban pets from the inside of the dining area, unless they are service animals for the hearing and sight impaired. This policy does not apply if you are not in the dining area. Usually as long as dogs are dewormed and properly groomed, many people do not see an obvious health reason for not allowing pets in a restaurant. However, the FDA prohibits live animals (except fish in tanks) in retail establishments where food is served.
At a young age you learn how to avoid and say no to peer pressure. So why not be able to do that with junk food? You cannot blame the government for your child trying drugs due to peer pressure, why should you be able to blame the government for the peer pressure of fast food chains? According to Radley Balko, people should own the fact that they want to be healthy and not wait for someone else to do something to make it harder for them to get it. If gun violence was on the rise should we raise the price of guns or promote gun safety and proper use?
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.
