For example, “The agriculture department estimated in 1999 that twelve million children were hungry or at risk of going hungry.” Many of these facts try and shock the reader with the result, “in 2000 requests for food assistance from families increased almost 20 percent” facts like these are what helps to persuade the reader. Anna also goes on to provide information from real people, not based on numbers. She talks about how socially, “The humiliations attached to being poor in a prosperous nation, not being able to feed your kids is at the top of the list” in an attempt to draw empathy out from the reader. She also talks of how some “parents who go hungry themselves so their kids can eat” which again is a very persuasive quote. Overall Anna quindlen’s essay talks greatly about how kids who aren’t supplied free school lunch can actually go starving.
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
In schools, the amount of food thrown away is overwhelming and it all just goes to landfills to just sit and rot and go to complete waste. An issue is going around is about whether compost should be allowed to be used for the environment of a school campus. Compost should be since it would help the food waste go to good, it would benefit the surrounding environment of the school, and it 'd help with the problem of landfills being over filled. In the United states, about 30-40 percent of the food is wasted. That waste ends up in landfills and rot to no use or purpose, even though those moldy, rotten tomatoes you threw out have a very good use and it can be the reason why your garden is so full of bright, vibrant flowers and plants.
School lunches are destroying our children 's health. Everyday students make choices on what they plan to eat, but is it a healthy choice? School lunches are changing all the time and kids get hurt by these choices. Even though some people may think school lunches are healthy for our children, they actually aren’t because of the choices they are making, affect how students will focus in class and the school lunches are formed around many different prices. Students choices they make on food can affect how they will focus in class.
Is making school lunches healthier really worth it? Is the money and kids going to be a problem? In twenty-ten an act was passed to help children eat healthier in school lunches. Schools are taking out foods that do not meet the calorie standard (two-hundred calories) because the obesity rate has skyrocketed since the eighties. But this act is actually causing more problems than everyone thought.
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.
Are school meals really that unhealthy? Why do so many people want healthier school lunches? Although many students don’t believe that the school lunches are unhealthy, schools should try to make every effort to increase the amount of healthy foods and to decrease the amount of junk food being sold because healthy foods are more nutritious and energy-rich so students can stay focused in class. In addition, much of the American population is obese and the rate of obesity is growing. And finally, junk food leads to other physical and emotional problems.

Some college students will eat alone 1,000 calories for breakfast. So colleges should have more healthier food plans and healthier food choices. A lot of freshman kids tend to go crazy when they get to college. The reason why I address that is because when your parents don’t let you party at home, you just wanna party the whole time you’re at college. It’s not all the parents fault, it’s some of the college’s fault.
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
So trust more with the Trustworths today. The first issue we have noticed is the food the schools serve. Many students have said the food is disgusting and that it makes them sick. We have came up with a solution for this issue. Each month we will have an optional survey for students to take, to pick the foods they would like to eat, and
Flanagan explains in her article, “ American kids are fatter and sicker than ever.” Building gardens at each school will not only improve student 's attendance but will help them eat better. Not everybody agrees with putting gardens in each school the real question is, “what are you doing to prepare these kids for college?”(423) Building gardens in school can be a good thing or a negative thing. Flanagan is trying to make it seem that building gardens in school would make kids graduate high
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.
Originally, Christie meant to slightly alter her eating habits to avoid Freshman 15 (when a freshman in college gains fifteen pounds from lack of exercise and excessive studying), but it became exponentially extreme. First, she decides to swap out soda for water, red meats for lean meats, and sugars for low-fat protein. Then, she completely cut out poultry, grains, and meats. As time passed, extreme healthy eating increasingly became an obsession in her daily life. In the preface, Christie tells the purpose of her memoir is to prevent other young girls from suffering with eating disorders and low self-esteem.
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
