first i want to say changes in what is served at schools are a huge thing that would help. I think instead of spending millions on telling companies how to market and what to market. people will still eat at fast foods. i think the main way to help is to teach people how to eat right. . education on what to eat and what not to eat is them the main key. people do not want to be fat or overweight have you ever heard anyone say yeah i want to weight 200 pounds if a female 300 if a man.but why are the lack of exercise, lack of knowledge, lack of what to buy let alone eat.
does it cost more to eat right not really but it does take knowledge. time and the desire.
i think the money should be spent on teaching what is healthy what is not. but you know you can teach children all day long about healthy options,but the parents are the ones making the meals , buying the meals. they are the ones needing education.teach and expose all the time a child to like veggies and fruit and whole wheat as a child and as an adult most times they will eat the same way. do you ever see fat kids with slim healthy parents who make exercise a part of the family activity's...
i also think instead of paying someone social society because they have a weight problem and can't work that the person needs to be given a gym membership and a personal trainer and education on eating right.also families on food stamps should be limited on only buying healthy foods..i knew a lady that bought a weeding cake on food stamps honeslty how wrong is that. thank you for your time just me ginger l cooper.
