Lunch is an important meal of the day and many children eat it at school. It helps our bodies and brains grow and develop into the way that they are supposed to by boosting our metabolism and giving us energy for the rest of the day. But it's probably one of the biggest problems in schools throughout America. We are told to eat healthy and good but we cannot always do that with the choices we have at the school. Students are being fed unhealthy lunches at school cafeterias simply because it is cheaper to produce unhealthy processed foods so alternatives and healthier food go away.
These could cause the obesity. Although advertising is not the only cause of the rising obesity, it influences children deeply. Therefore, the pressure groups want to limit the junk food advertisings in order to avoid the obesity that could expand to the next generation. The influence of the children in a family is very strong, especially in the family which has only one child. They could persuade their parents to spend money, as their parents often give them what they want.
Many students don’t like to communicate with teacher’s in-front of their peers for fear of being made fun of, therefor technology makes it easier to ask questions and get help when it’s needed. Although it is very helpful with communication and teaching, it can also create distractions that hinder learning.

Parents usually seek the easier route by picking up dinners which are super high in carbs and sodium, or rent movies to pacify the kids after school. These are horrible habits that unfortunately will continue to affect society. Being that we are role models to our kids we should implement better habits like healthy snacks, keep healthy foods in the fridge and pantry, always start the day with a healthy breakfast, meals with the family, chew slowly and enjoy the food. In conclusion, parents have the upper hand in shaping their children eating habits and exercise for a longer brighter future. We are role models, something that people seem to forget so let’s act like it and prevent cardiovascular diseases in children.
We have a crisis on our hands with childhood obesity on the rise. Two main causes for the fattening of our children are junk food and sugary sodas. Junk food and soda often take the place of healthy foods in our kids’ diets, something that most school systems should be ashamed of. School lunches are a cause of childhood obesity in America, at least in U-46 schools. In order to put an end to childhood obesity, the schools needs to prepare a healthy yet balanced diet for all kids, by serving them with good food that is full of nutrition.

Instead of going outside to get same exercises, they prefer to stay in room to go online, and with the internet they can play whatever they want, they even make friend through community websites. Therefore, Americans have the high ratio of obesity because of the low quantities of physical activities among children and teenagers. According to Schwager (2010), from the statistic in 2007, there are about 70% of high school student in the US did not participate in physical education classes, and 65% who did not pass the recommend level of physical activities. It seems that they do not like the physical activities because they have a lot of interesting
This is due to the fact some of the most delicious foods are the unhealthiest. Because, of a lot of the best foods being the fatty, fried foods that almost everybody loves. The meal programs in schools that are feeding around 32 million children countrywide are having trouble to incorporate the foods children need into good, plentiful meals (Vilslack).
