Canady 1 Taylor Canady Mrs. Freeman 7th Period 28 April 2015 Healthier School Lunches School lunches around the world need to be healthier for our body’s health. The things the world needs to work on is that kids are not eating the fruits, vegetables, and grains they need to eat in a day. The people in this world need to help the kids break their habit of eating junk food all the time. The world need to start by taking away some of the junk food in schools and exchange it with fruits and vegetables. School lunch ladies need to give the kids the nutrients they need so they do not gain weight.
Outline and evaluate attitudes to food and eating behaviour (9 + 16) Social learning theory emphasises the impact that observing other people has on our own attitudes and behaviour to food. Parental modelling is one explanation of attitudes to food as children observe their parents and this affects children because parents control the foods bought and served in the home. Brown and Ogden support how imitation leads to attitudes to food when they reported consistent correlations between parents and their children in term os snack food intake, eating motivations and body dissatisfaction. Media also has a large impact on attitudes to eating behaviour. Macintyre et al found that the media have a major impact both on what people eat and also their attitudes to certain foods.
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.
While some argued that it is the fault of food industries, and for some, fault of consumers, it can easily be resolved with two words: self-responsibility. Therefore, consumers are definitely the ones responsible for the current epidemic in this country. The first reason why consumers are responsible for America’s obesity epidemic is because consumers are the ones that choose what to eat and feed their children. There are many alternatives to fast food but most people rather not take their time to prepare for a healthier meal. In “The Battle against Fast Food Begins in Home”, author Daniel Weibtraub tries to convince parents to take a stand and fend off obesity in their homes.
1. If we had any difficulties or dilemmas around choice of food we would help to advise the client with his or her choice. Making sure there is enough different varieties of things to be chose from or if an individual feels they have too much choice we can help narrow it down by knowing certain things the particularly like. As a support assistant it my job to assit with choices, and advise them about healthy foods and the importance. For example: A Service user cannot understand a menu when It is present in a list form , so we could help them make their choice by getting images of meals they would be presented with to eat.
Both very valid arguments and we will begin to see why during this passage. The first major aspect of this article is why it would be a wise choice to remove unhealthy drinks and snacks from school vending machines. Tom Vilsack states in school is where these children consume half of their daily calorie intake. Schools are promoting unhealthy lifestyles to our younger generation. Vilsack feels by reforming and changing the school meal menu into healthier choices that it will in fact ensure a more nutritious and healthy effect on children.
Showing them how to obtain a healthy lifestyle will benefit them for the future. It's very important that kids will be able to keep themselves away from obesity when they're older and on their own. Although parents can't completely put a stop to this solely, fast food restaurant's cheap and convenient food takes a big part in this issue as well. Every day that comes people have the control to eat what they want. After a hard day of work most people want a quick and easy dinner so they automatically think of eating out for the night.
Unit 8-P2 In this essay I am going to explain different psychological approaches to health practice. Social learning theory According to this theory, we need to have a good role model in our life, so that we can learn good behaviours from them. For people who want to eat healthy and be healthy, celebrity such as, Jamie Oliver would be a very good role model, because he teach people to eat healthy to have a healthy life. He also brought lots of publicity to the healthy eating campaign. If someone eats junk food all the time and that person’s mother or friend told him/her to eat healthy, it’s less likely that he/she will listen to them, but if he/she admires Jamie Oliver and he suggests to eat healthy, then there is more possibility for that person to follow what he says.
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.
Discuss attitudes to food and/or eating behaviour There are many explanation of attitudes to food and eating behaviours many are supported by different research, many of them are outlined as clinical (having an eating disorder) sub-clinical (below having an eating disorder) and non-clinical (comfort eaters). The social learning theory is a main explanation to why we have certain attitudes towards food, which is mostly due to parental influence; this is because we observe our parents attitudes towards food and what they eat. Our parents at this age are in control of our diet by controlling our consumption of food within the house hold; in which we then become accustom to our parents diets, and their behaviour towards the purchasing of food products; therefore we are learning to eat the same way as our parents do. A study by Brown and Ogden found a constant correlation between parents and their children in terms of snack food intake, body dissatisfaction and eating motivations. However it isn’t just parents who play an important role in influencing our food habits the media is also a key influence.
