Florence Kelley was hoping to achieve respect and loyalty to the people she led. She was hoping that her speech would reach out to people and show them what it was like to be working as a child. She successfully persuaded people in the association to restrict child labor. The audience that this argument is presented to is the people of the United States. She at first presents this argument to the people that attended the convention of the National American Woman Suffrage Association.
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).

Childhood obesity is a rising issue in the United States and has been deemed one of “the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century” by the World Health Organization (WHO) and will continue to be one if nothing is done. Out of all the programs aimed at helping children get healthy, our main focus should be school-based programs. We need to concentrate our attention on teaching our children in schools how to make proper food choices and get them excited about moving around and being active. In the US, over 25% of children are considered overweight and almost 10% are considered obese. These are outrageously high numbers and are only going to increase unless we act fast.
There is a saying by a well-known American author and nutritionist, Adelle Davis, which given much weight to breakfast. It says, ‘eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dinner like a pauper’. This literally means breaking the fast of the night. As we all know, the term ‘breakfast’ literally translates as ‘breaking the fast’, which makes breakfast as the first meal usually eaten in the morning. Imagine how many hours have it been since one eats after having dinner, say, at 7 pm and then having breakfast at 7 am the next morning?
As mentioned earlier, I struggled with my weight for many years, and my mother struggles with obesity. So, I know from personal experience that there is more to nutrition and being healthy than simply knowing the science, and putting the correct things in to your body. I’m interested in the cultural background of America’s vast diversity of people. I feel that it is imperative that a nutritional counselor must understand and be sensitive of the socio-economic background of the person they are trying to reach. For example, does my patient have the financial means to follow through with my advice?
Walking around you can see kids in there teens that are overweight, so their quality of life is hindered. It’s a serious problem, and it must be addressed properly in order to achieve any success in decreasing the obesity percentage in the adolescent community. I propose that we ban all junk foods sold on school grounds, we also must educate and advertise healthy eating habits. Parents are the biggest reason students are obese but schools are the runner up. It's up to Vacaville High School to create a atmosphere that promotes the consumption of healthy foods so that they can become healthier and hopefully promote a healthy lifestyle when they graduate from school.
Since 2000 research has shown that ⅓ of child are now overweight. Teenagers are blaming fast foods industries for their health problems, but no one is forcing them to eat the food. Obesity is a serious issue in the United States now causing some public health groups in california to ask the governor to declare a childhood obesity state of emergency, recording to Daniel Weintraub.

Although this is true, this doesn’t mean that obesity is inevitable, this just means that the host will have to work a lot harder to return to a healthy physical state.

According to Northoff (2007), nutrition is critical for a healthy and active life, but many people around the world still have no access to sufficient and nutritious food because of poverty and lack of nutrition education. Moreover, Riddle (2005) stresses that nutrition education is a key for developing the skills and motivation needed to eat well, and is especially important in situations where families have limited resources. The benefits of nutrition education and counselling can directly influence nutritional status, consequently, helping in attaining the millennium development goal (MDG) to reduce the prevalence of hunger and malnutrition (Garcia, 2008). In a recent preliminary study conducted by ENDESA in 2007, the way in which the mother’s educational level influenced malnutrition was observed. Statistics reveal that 15.4 percent of children of mothers with no education suffered from chronic malnutrition, while 9.4 percent and 4.7 percent in children of mothers with secondary or higher education levels respectively (Acevedo & Menendez, 2006).
