My name is Kane Zimper and I am running for President. Our Party name is the Trustworths, because you can trust us with anything. We picked the eagle for our symbol because it symbolizes America. Some issues we have noticed are the foods they serve at school, texting and driving, and letting immigrants in the U.S. We believe that these problems need to be dealt with the right way as soon as possible.
This is especially true of children who regularly consume fast food. Obesity in children can lead to conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and a variety of other health problems besides depression and lower
Gentrification is the process of renovating and improving a house or district so that it conforms to middle-class taste. Real Estate investors usually take low-income places that they feel have a chance to prosper economically, and turn them into areas that attract the middle and upper class workers. In doing so they feel like the low-income areas will be safer and more appealing, attracting more people to visit and live there. An improvement to a poor district sounds beautiful, but is gentrification as great as it’s sought out to be? Many residents have their doubts about gentrification due to the idea that the costs of their living will go up and they will be driven out of their neighborhoods.
Imagine if you ate fast food 5 days a week for lunch. How do you think that would affect your health and your wallet? Studies show that fast food joints within walking distance of schools show gain more profit from students than the surrounding community (Miura). Today I am going to show you the health risks an open campus lunch poses, the threat of schools losing money, and the dangers to the community that it can cause.
Researchers have found another cause for childhood obesity, the school lunch. In fact, school lunches have gotten so bad that they’re impacting today’s obesity rates. A survey taken from 1973 to 1974 compared to a survey taken in 2003 to 2004 showed that school-aged children jumped from 4% to a disturbing 18.8%, that's a 14.8% jump from over the years. Let's move is a program launched by the First Lady of the united states dedicated to solving
When it comes to how the students feel about this change, there have been many disagreements about the new school lunches. It is reported that many students have begun to bring their own lunches to school or have chosen not to eat. This outrage has been caught by news channels including US News and Fox News, which shows the reaction of students and families regarding the change of school lunches. It is said that students have begun declining lunches but according to Turner & Chaloupka (2014), “Although 13.7% of respondents ‘‘strongly agreed’’ that at first students complained about the meals, 63.2% also agreed or strongly agreed that most students are no longer concerned about the meals” (Turner & Chaloupka, p. 353). In other words, in the beginning of the study, students were complaining about the school lunches that were given but after they became more familiar with it, they complained less.
I have many memories of school lunches, most of which were not high in nutritional value. In elementary school, students have options of a ‘hot lunch’ or a ‘cold lunch’. A typical school lunch in the United States does not compare to those served in other countries such as Brazil, France, Italy, South Korea, and Spain (just to name a few). As I am majoring in Elementary Education, one of my requirements is to do some work in a local elementary school. I work with a student in second grade, and I attend lunch with her.
Students tend to eat school food that is appealing to them because it is something they look forward to eating, where as other food doesn't appeal to them. Studies show that waste has inflated significantly since the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act” was placed in 2011 by Michelle Obama. (Wanjek) Waste wouldn’t have increased so much if school took a vote on what students like better, instead of making all of the food “healthy”, but then still giving us vending machines,and ala carte with chips,
Another unfortunate reality of this is that there is a severe lack of healthy options when it comes to food choice in the cafeterias. This is due to inadequate public funding for the school meal plans and with this under funding the schools must purchase cheap, frozen and fatty foods that is given to the children every day. Michele Obamas recently created a “Let’s Move” campaign which focuses on this issue which has had some success in implementing change into school’s meal services but at the same time made it that schools are unable to serve large quantities of food. The food would also go bad sooner and in turn cost the school considerable amount of
At first i was glad that changes were being made to the school lunch but then i saw the outcome . We got food that dogs wouldn't even eat . The food that is semi good is unhealthy and only a small portion is given. There was a survey taken in a high school with 1,300 students and only 22% said the food was actually healthy and out of that only 13% said
According to info from the ¨U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention¨, almost 7,500 kids became victims to the norovirus between 1998 and 2007. Norovirus was implicated in another 2,000 school sicknesses between these years, although investigators could not definitively determine a font. So would you rather eat school food or fast food. Although increasing percentages of schools are meeting the minimum quality standards for school lunches each year, there is little question that more needs to make
Have you ever wondered why school lunches taste so bad? Or have you ever wondered why you never feel fully satisfied after eating the school lunch? The Government should not have control over school lunches and the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act should be abolished because Banned food in the U.S. are staples for other countries and they have lower obesity rates, The amount of waste from schools is atrocious and lastly, Students now get smaller portions and are unfocused thanks to the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act. The food schools ban children from eating in the United States ,are actually staples in many others countries diets and those countries have lower obesity rates.
As an unhappy parent of an 8th grader, I am currently writing to you in order to express my own concern regarding the increasing rates of childhood obesity and diabetes as well as the sale of junk food in public schools located in Connecticut. Since my child has started to attend middle school he has gained 10 kilograms of weight, which is to me, completely unacceptable. I certainly believe that one of the reasons to him getting so obese in a matter of 2 years is due to schools selling and advertising inappropriate food for children during the school day. Recently, I have read an article titled “The Junk Food Lobby Wins Again,” and let me share with you some information I have gleaned from it: according to this article, the issue regarding the sale of junk food in schools across the USA is
In the same article, Murphy says something that made me think. ¨….children either toss out the healthier meals or opt to brown bag it.¨. Now, this may lead you to the conclusion that if we drop junk food and switch to only healthy food, children will just bring
