There is Ronald McDonald, the Big Mac song, Happy Meals, and play areas. They see these items on the television or other electronic devices and immediately ask their parents if they will bring them to the highly addictive restaurant. In an attempt to stop franchises like McDonald’s from targeting young minors in their advertisements, parents need to restrict television and cell phone use for their progenies. Parents need to restrict usage because of the health risks involved, the incentives that come along with it, and the high amounts of advertisements. Primarily, parents need to

Some schools offer greasy pizza, unhealthy burgers, and in some cases, ice cream and cake. Some even say that these school lunches are even more unhealthy than today’s fast food chains. These lunches are not bad to offer every once and awhile, but when it is the daily meal a student is given at school, that’s where it starts to become a problem for most students. It’s also said that school lunches
Parents should attack this issue by controlling how much their child consumes, making sure the child(ern) exercises. To prevent obesity we must inform both the parents and the cafeteria workers about what is a healthy meal and what is not, exercise, and using apps such as make your plate!

Just 30 minutes of physical activity each day can not only result in weight loss, but it can make your child healthier. So, drop the remote control and grab that bicycle and go outside.

From a parent’s perspective who would not want their child to grow up happy and healthy. Through the past years of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA implemented their new guideline throughout the nation for school lunches to have more fruits and vegetables while cutting out the fatty foods such as French fries or Coke; it would be expected that the general public would have some complaints.

Should Junk Food Be Sold in Schools? Is selling junk food to students in school really a good idea? As you’re probably aware, most schools sell junk food to students at some point in time, rather it’s through a snack line, a vending machine, or a school fundraiser. Schools sell such foods to children every day. Although junk food may be a good way to increase school income, schools should avoid selling it to students because it’s unhealthy, linked to childhood obesity, and unnecessary sugars can cause hyperactivity.
Their health can also be affected incredibly, if they eat fast food way too much. Their money can also be majorly affected by advertisements if they choose to spend money on worthless products. The role of advertising in the lives of youth is extremely important, it makes or breaks their decisions with money, health and what they do with their life. To start us off, marketing companies may say that they are just “doing their job” but, in reality they are just taking advantage of every aspect of youth’s lives, including school! Like sometimes I’ll walk around school and I see a group of kids wearing a bunch of thrasher magazine t-shirts.
Jamie Oliver explains, in excruciating and terrifying detail, the horrors of fast food and its effects on children. He explains how on three different levels, School, Home, and Main St., what food children are consuming on a daily basis and how it is contributing to childhood obesity. The food that children are consuming on a daily basis at school is horrifying to me. Jamie Oliver then goes on to explain how in our own homes, food consumption is. We have gone away from the classic “home-cooked meals” and have turned to the more fattening foods for breakfast and lunch.
Daniel Weintraub argues in his article,”The Battle Against Fast Food Begins in the Home,” about who is to blame for children obesity. Weintraub is telling parents that they are the ones that can fix this problem, not the government, food companies, or the video-game manufacturers. I agree with Weintraub. How are children supposed to know how much is too much. The commercials don’t tell the kids not to eat too much of their product or they’ll get obese.
The data showed that 1 in 3 people would like to add more salads to their daily eating habits. Salads have many nutrient value including Proteins , potassium, and carbohydrates. If you were to want a salad at Moreno Valley High School there is expired lettuce that looks more yellow than green and with cheese that is not fresh. Even if a kid was well educated in nutrition they do not have the necessary materials to eat properly.We are failing to help the future kids of America be strong both mentally and physically. The surprising factor for our school is that many kids buy cookies sold in a snack bar next to the lunch line, every 2 in 3 people said they would choose to eat a bag of grapes over a
In the article “The Battle Against Fast Food Begins In The Home”, Daniel Weintraub argues that parents, not fast food companies, are at fault for kids who are overweight/have unhealthy eating habits. Weintraub supports his argument by using and explaining research focused on “... the increasing consumption of fast food and soft drinks, larger portion sizes in restaurants, the availability of junk food on campus, advertising of junk food to children and their families, and the lack of consistent physical education programs in the schools.” The author’s purpose is to raise awareness that parents/guardians need to take responsibility so their children stop blaming others for the issues that are going on in their homes. Weintraub’s articles is
Parents usually blame the advertisements that pass on television promoting junk food and believe that it is persuading the child to buy or consume the product that is been promoted. But in reality the advertisement is for the parents but and the parent will take the decision if it is good for their kids. When they show the image of the product on television the image might seem really appetite that would convince someone to go and buy the product. That is the person 's opinion of course and yeah eat in a fast food restaurant is not a bad thing but some people don 't the the damage it can make the body. There have been people who eat everyday out and in two weeks gain more than 5 pounds and their cholesterol raises.
That action leads to a clear and present danger in our communities. Now don’t get me a wrong, a good juicy cheeseburger is good every once in a while. Through the opening of these fast food restaurants, kids, adults, and students alike will be more tempted than ever to spend the money on a quick and easy meal. I can’t count the number of times my parents have gotten take out simply because they didn’t want to cook. Secondly, the prices of fresh food are at an all-time high.
