In the article “The Battle Against Fast Food Begins in the Home” the author, Daniel Weintraub, argues that parents are responsible for the obesity of children, not anyone or anything else, the parents. Weintraub supports his claims by explaining data and research used to show that most studies focus on “...the increasing consumption of fast food and soft drinks, larger portion sizes in restaurants, the availability of junk food on campus, advertising of junk food to children and their families, and the lack of consistent physical education programs in the schools” said in paragraph 8. The author’s purpose is to raise awareness that parents need to take responsibility so that their children stop blaming others for something that others have
You are going to the cafeteria to buy lunch. You are starving and pick up a tray to get food. The first thing you see are chicken nuggets, then you remember you can’t eat chicken nuggets because you are allergic to gluten. So you get some mashed potatoes and fruit instead. You want to get dessert but the brownies have peanuts in them and you’re allergic to peanuts too. When you want a drink, the only drink available is milk, but you are lactose intolerant. You go to pay, with only a little bit of mashed potatoes and fruit on your tray. Schools do not have enough lunch options for kids with allergies. 1 in 13 kids is affected from a food allergy and 40% of these kids have life threatening reactions.

Peanut allergies are dangerous for kids all over the world, but schools still feed kids peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. “Peanut allergies are the body's overreaction to certain proteins found in peanuts. The immune system's response to these allergens is to trigger an antibody, which then triggers other chemicals. One of the scariest results of these chemicals is the chance for anaphylaxis, which is a potentially fatal condition in which sufferers have trouble breathing because of constricted airways, experience a sudden and drastic drop in blood pressure, have an increased pulse rate, and sometimes even pass out.”
Today McDonald’s has many more competitors such as; Carl’s Jr., Sonic, Chick-Fil-A and Burger King, which now provides kid’s meals with toys. Parents are infuriated by the fact that the free toy is making their children want the unhealthy food, yet they feel obligated to buy the meal to make their child happy. Though these children are still more interested in the popular the toy and will beg their parents to buy the meal from the fast food industry. Nevertheless many parents have stood up against the toys in their child’s meal. In Santa Clara, California there has been a banment of toys in children's meals. Ken Yeager stated in the interview with The New York Times, “the playing field by taking away the incentive to choose fatty, sugary foods over healthier options.” Yeager along with many others are starting to notice that they, children, are reaching for the unhealthy items rather than the healthy items. The children do not ask for the burger and fries, in most cases, it is usually the toy they are after. In April of 2010, the first law of this kind will be allowing these industries to give away toys as long as they do not have excessive calories, sodium, sugar, or
Along with Christopher Columbus ' many discoveries, the pumpkin was one them. The pumpkin, being indigenous to the Americas, was a gourd the Europeans admired. Columbus winkled pumpkin seeds out of a pumpkin and personally brought the seeds along the Columbian trade so it may diffuse across the globe; however, the pumpkin seeds were actually used as an aliment for pigs aboard his ship during his voyages. His target location was Europe. Europe, due to Christopher 's introduction of pumpkins and other New World foods, experienced an economic, cultural, and cuisine revolution. In modern day Germany, The Ludwigsburg Pumpkin Festival typically displays more than 450,000 pumpkins each year, arranging them to create larger than life sculptures based on a particular theme. Ireland also experienced a cultural revolution. The Irish, prior to the 1800 's, used turnips as Jack O ' Lanterns. The Irish learned pumpkins were not only easier to carve out, but they were also a lot bigger. Pumpkins made the Irish culture of keeping away "Stiky Jack" during Halloween more ostentatious.

Pediatricians are seeing an increase in situations like youngsters needing leg braces because of corpulence related joint issues. The author emphasizes that it has become difficult for parents in this technological age to keep the children from
