Obesity

...stigmatize the children by letting them think that they are fat and that they should get rid of those baby fats because our society does not tolerate that. But we are trying to let them now that no matter how young they are their future starts the moment they got out of the womb and it’s only by taking the right decision and following the correct guide lines that they would be mentally, physically and emotionally healthy. The efforts to end child obesity is already underway and the first lady Michele Obama has created a foundation, “Let’s move”, the purpose of that foundation is to encourage parents and schools into serving the right meal to students (MMWR 42-46). All these information of how their plate should be could be found at Choosemyplate.com. 3.Conclusion In conclusion, I have talked about ways to prevent and reduce childhood obesity.

The government has also created several websites like, “Let’s move.org” and “choosemyplate.com”, which provides healthy alternatives to daily snacks and meals (Hagelin, 2012, p.6). It is important to address this claim in my paper because obesity is a serious medical problem that is costing our country billions of dollars every year (Hagelin, 2012, p.8). By choosing this viewpoint I will be able to argue that it is as much our own responsibility to lead healthy lives, as it is a parent’s responsibility to lead healthy lives for their children. I strongly believe that our nation leads by example and if we are to prevent childhood obesity then we, as a country, need to step up and help make that difference.
