The media could also give true and important information about nutrition, instead of always promoting entertainment or negative things. The media should support the health of children and adolescents in a positive way. The marketing system could create things that push kids to want to engage in physical activities. Another important factor that is important is eating a balanced meal at least three times a day. This solution is the responsibility of parents and partly the school.
(2017), Pender’s model when applied in training can produce a positive effect and improve the nutritional behaviors. Promoting the people’s knowledge about nutrition is a sure way of changing of nutritional behaviors. It can replace inappropriate nutritional behaviors with which are appropriate. The constituents of the healthy nutritional pattern are one that encompasses the nutritional habits, culture, and public knowledge. Creating awareness through a nursing education program is essential.
It should be shown in a variety of different ways to children, they should have a role model and be shown how they can keep healthy, this is including at home as well as In the setting. Parents and carers should work together to make sure children see examples of how to stay active and healthy. In the setting all the food that children are provided should be healthy, and if children do bring their own food such as if they have a packed lunch, it should be nutritious and healthy for them. The EYFS framework says 'The practitioner must promote good health of all the children that are attending the setting'. It is really essential that children develop healthy eating habits while they are young, this is because it will help promote their health and make sure they are healthy in the long and short
Early years is recognised as an important time for children. They are growing and developing both minds and bodies. We are building a basis for their futures, providing children with adequate nutritional foods, is extremely important. A balanced and nutritional diet is also an important priority for the government, as well as pre-schools and schools. All children need to be giving a nutritional diet in order to function properly.
This is why it is the best place to begin educating children about how to make healthy food choices and why it is important to stay active. Schools are also typically located in communities that vary in socioeconomic status. Having a place where you can reach children from all different backgrounds is the best way to reach all children and not just those who are well off. Teaching children more about their health at school also ensures that every child is getting the tools necessary to make smart decisions which can even benefit their family. If a child comes from a lower income home and learns about affordable healthy foods, they can help teach their parents make better
If the people are more aware of these dangers I think their environment will much better to live in. If there are quality schools built the children will get a better education. If they got a better education there are chances that they will be smart in making the right decisions. They will make healthy life choices and be successful in their life. If health insurance is given to all even those who cannot afford can help, make a difference.
b) Quality of child care practices and child nutrition In their study of childcare practices in Ghana, Nti and Lartey (2008:94) indicated that the quality of childcare practices is important for child nutrition. They assess the quality of childcare practices by considering household and personal hygiene practices, child immunization status, child dietary diversity and caregiver responsiveness. Nti and Lartey (2008:98) reported a significant correlation between good caregiver hygiene practices with child nutritional status and morbidity. Hygiene practices included child, mother and environmental cleanliness. They found that children with more active caregivers who were more likely to complete their children’s immunization schedules, encourage the child to eat and offer more food were more likely to have improved child nutritional status than less active caregivers.
They will be informed first and foremost of what they are already doing good and bad. If they can see that something’s that they already incorporated in their everyday life then they will be more acceptable to the change. They will learn how to grocery shop effectively. Which means they will be taught how to buy higher priced healthy foods over the cheaper bad foods without breaking the bank. They will also be taught how to how to cook healthy foods that are kid friendly.
The way PE classes to this in explained in the article, Physical Education is a Necessary Developmental Tool by stating, “...instill in students the importance of physical health and bodily awareness in their development...includes information about nutrition and healthy food choices...can avoid these costs by giving young people the tools to avoid and overcome obesity and other eating disorders…” It’s important that children learn how to maintain proper health. PE gives this information such as how much/what kind of exercise to be doing and what foods to be eating or avoiding. How students learn healthy behaviors is interpreted in, Using PE to Teach Vital Skills by saying, “...children are to fully engage with sport and physical activity and develop a lifelong love of exercise...Building a passion and love for a sport is critical in sustaining a prolonged involvement in it…” Some students may not realize that they actually do have an interest in some type of physical activity. If involved in a PE class, they may find a sport that they’re hooked on. Playing this sport may allow them to stay or become physically fit.
I personally believe that it starts with an individual to make a change, regardless of how small you start but it somehow makes a change. We provide children and families with the means to fight hunger and achieve food security. Food security means that families will know where their next meal is coming from — and that it will be enough nutritious food to live an active, healthy life. Also improve their skills so they can Increase agricultural productivity through improved seeds and farming practices, Improving access to markets so farming families can sell their surplus food, Teaching families and communities how to improve nutrition and dietary diversity and Managing resources in a sustainable way to prevent soil erosion, maintain soil fertility, use water more efficiently, and protect the environment. This approaches I
