Children are the future of the United States. It’s sad to see that a high percentage of them are obese. As a student in Vacaville High School, I am active in sports and enjoy going to the gym. Those activities only take three to four hours out of my day and it’s well worth it. Walking around you can see kids in there teens that are overweight, so their quality of life is hindered.
How can children with so few opportunities to socialize and communicate be expected to live and work together in harmony as adults? When and where will they learn how? Exercise is healthy. Many children suffer from obesity, but even children at healthy weight levels benefit from physical activity, and in fact require it for optimal health. The outdoors is the best place for children to burn calories, practice emerging physical skills and experience the pure joy of movement.
As a result, more children would be out for sports by the time they got to middle school and would most likely not be overweight. If children were to start sports at an early age, childhood obesity could fall dramatically. Additionally, school sports participation builds social skills. If children find it hard to make friends, sports are a great place to start because of all the time they spend together. With the problem of people becoming more antisocial, this is a
School sports have a scheduled practice and specific work out to help every athlete’s endurance, this way a child is on a routine schedule for a workout which is healthy for the body. Plus, doing chores at home can keep a child busy instead of consuming too much electricity by watching TV. Keeping children occupied is another way that a child becomes physically active. In the same way, spending family time together like going to the park or playing a sport can help a child become physically active, granted playing video games is considered as spending family time but parents should be aware and not use technology. Even though technology is constantly advancing, children must know how to physically take care of
The adrenaline and energy of every child who loves to spend time with their devices are unstoppable. Granted, technology is becoming part of everyone’s daily life, but parents should be responsible for monitoring their children’s use of technology to avoid health issues. Parents believe that these devices have educational benefits, but it can have a long-term health effect. Children without proper supervision of technology use will likely suffer from childhood obesity because of the lack of physical activity, bad eating habits, and poor sleep cycle. It is important for parents to be aware that technology is consuming their children’s time because children are more interested in their device instead of playing outside.
Renner incorporates suspenseful and depressing music to bring attention to the fact that obesity can have a negative impact on a child’s life. For example, the US government spends 51 million marketing healthy eating to kids while the food industry spends 1.6 billion on ads promoting foods high in calories and low in nutrition to kids. When this fact was presented, the drums made the audience’s heart race as it shows how many high calorie foods restaurants hold. This is done to reveal how fast food places are fooling customers into buying their foods. Second, Renner includes calming music when showing children that are engaging in physical activity.
Introduction Even as one of the richest countries in the world, childhood hunger affects millions of kids across the United States. We all know that we need food to survive, but it is crucial that a child has more than enough food to just survive. Children between 4-10 are learning the most basics and most important ideas in school and social life, and without proper nutrition, these children can fall behind. Due to poor federally funded programs, local cities and communities must come together to make sure no child goes hungry. Proper nutrition is important for growing children for a healthy mental, social, and physical life; however, some children do not have access to a proper nutrition.
One reason that people do sports is to stay healthy active and most importantly not become obese. Every year the NHS spends £16 billion on obesity. Taxpayers give more money to the NHS to combat this than they are giving to the police and the fire service. Sports also strengthen the heart, lungs and bones and it reduces blood sugar levels, which if they get too high can lead to a coma if you are diabetic. This can be life threatening if no action is taken.
There are studies that show kids who skip breakfast are tardy and absent from school more often than children who eat breakfast on a regular basis. Nutritionists advise that breakfast should be eaten within two hours of waking and a healthy breakfast should provide calories in the range of 20-35% of your guideline daily allowance (GDA). Apart from providing us with energy, breakfast foods are good sources of nutrients that are important to our body such as iron, calcium and B vitamins as well as fibre and protein. The body needs these essential nutrients to function properly and research shows that if these are missed at breakfast, they are likely will not be compensated for later in the
