In her chapter “Starting Early” in the book Food Politics, Marion Nestle, a nutritionist, and professor of food studies, insists that children are introduced to junk foods early in life due to obsessive commercials advertisements, trying to persuade them mainly. Dr. Nestle started writing her chapter on how concerned she is because there are more obese children than ever (175). Statistically, the author explained that there are more non-Caucasian kids that are obese than white children (Nestle 175). She says that the main reason children become obese is because they eat foods that are not nutritious for them because the society tells do so after watching advertisements on TV. The author believes that the changes in the demographics, economy, environment, and society are part of the cause for the increase of childhood obesity (Nestle 175).
But, what happens when food isn’t what you believe it is? Fed Up (2014) is documentary directed and produced by Stephanie Soechtig, written by the director and Mark Monroe. Fed Up is a documentary that focuses on the food industry, specifically the United States’ major food organizations, with the aim to inform the people on how they are being manipulated to eat more and worse. By watching this simple, fast paced, hour and a half movie, one can learn a lot of things that may seem useless at first sight, like the number of food advertisements a kid watches every day. But, added to everything one may be ignorant to about the food industry, it means a lot.
He wants to illustrate to people that the fast food they eat can cause health related problems.

In the article "Don 't Blame the Eater," by David Zinczenko demonstrates the argument of blame towards Fast-food restaurants due to teenage obesity in the country. As Zinczenko 's essay progressed, he included his personal experience to be used as a credible source. Along with his experience he includes imaginary and sets a particular tone to achieve an effect to persuade his audience. In disagreement to his standing point, he ignores all perspectives to create a one choice response. Zinczenko had a good method to capture the audience 's attention.
That’s one argument. But where, exactly, are consumers---particularly teenagers---supposed to find alternatives?” ” (Zinczenko, 2015, p463). I believe that he try to make argument that fast food restaurant are everywhere and the alternative are limited. Once he make clear of the problem and who he believe that is the main responsible, then he presents the argument about the lack of approach that this industry has to try to provide consumers with proper information in order for then to be able to make the right choice. I love the way that he end the essay by putting the problem back to whom he believe own it.
This statement is made because blind consumers are not free from the hidden truth of our food: such as the process, the chemical additives, and the state of the food we consume. In “A Healthy Constitution,” Alice Waters gave an example of how the transition from processed to whole foods changed the attitude and health of students in an alternative high school. She concluded that the nutritional value of processed foods, which is nearly nonexistent, had a negative effect on the mental state and well-being of students; the alternative, fresh whole foods, were grown locally grown and had greater nutritional value(Waters 141).
According to ‘Food Allergies: Are Schools Doing Enough?” by Lisa Kadane, children can die within 2-3 minutes when they are exposed to food they’re allergic to. This makes it very unsafe for them in the cafeteria because many lunches have hidden ingredients, and because of cross contact between foods (Kadane). Schools should take action by removing common allergens from lunch, stating the ingredients in the lunches they serve, and by practicing good cleaning procedures. Many schools are failing to keep our children safe because they do not have epi pens for allergic reactions. We must change this, schools don’t have lunches for kids with allergies or medication to give to them during reactions to help save their lives.
A lot of teens and college students eat snacks that are not healthy such as chips, pop, candy, etc. The majority of people might only eat one meal that contains the nutritional foods because they are on the go or just simply do not care. There are three major reasons as to why people are lacking in nutrition: nutrition is not taught in school, marketing persuades public opinion about food, and
People have tried and failed to stay fit and healthy due to their desk-bound lifestyle and hunger for cheap, fast, and unhealthy food. The current system we have in high school students ' lunch is in need of revision. I plan to clear up the problems we currently face, and the ways we can mend it. The problems we have are the funds for foods, the actual food itself, and the low budget kitchens, The first issue is the money the schools are given to provide healthy lunches for students. The budget is insufficient to provide healthy foods.
