This shows that we complain so much on how the food is prepared but the government as well as every individual does not want to pay the price.

Proof of success is seen from, “The Center for Disease Control and Prevention which credits…a greater variety of fresh produce in low-income neighborhoods for a drop in obesity rates among preschoolers” (Brady 520).

These “food deserts” in many communities are because they are low-income, multicultural regions. The people living there are only offered cheap, unhealthy substitutes, also resulting in an obesity problem throughout the country. Garrett M.
