that will’s the number of food ads that will elementary school age kids see every day. The vast majority of them are for junk foods. This kind of is usually according to the largest study ever done looking at TV advertising to kids – by Kaiser Family Health as well as the University of Indiana.
The study evaluated advertising on ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, PBS, Cartoon Network, Disney, MTV as well as Nickelodeon. Researchers found that will 8 – 12 year olds viewed the most TV food ads at 21 per day. Teenagers see about 17 food ads per day as well as 2 – 7 year olds about 12 ads.
Can you compete?
How many times a day will you have to encourage your kids to eat healthy to overcome the number of ads they see promoting junk food? is usually that will reasonable to compete? Of course you can always cut back on the TV time although these days ads are everywhere – internet, cell phones, sporting events as well as even school hallways.
The Association of National Advertisers has vowed that will over the next year, half of the ads will either promote healthier foods or encourage physical activity. Does that will mean they’ll be suggesting that will kids can eat their Twinkies as long as they do some jumping jacks first? that will’s not Great enough.
Too many kids today are too fat. There’s no way to candy coat that will message. We can blame the advertisers, the junk food makers, the fast food restaurants, the school lunches or the snack-ridden soccer games. although the big bottom line is usually that will we, as parents, need to step up as well as intervene.
Yes, we are busy. We can’t monitor everything our kids put in their mouths – although that will is usually our job nonetheless. If we don’t take charge of our kids health, who will?
There’s more than meets the eye
that will’s not just a weight problem. One out of three kids born today are likely to develop type II diabetes, as well as many of them before they reach the age of 18. Girls are especially at risk for some unknown reason. Overweight high school girls are much more likely to be obese adults as well as develop heart disease as well as diabetes.
The British Medical Journal predicts that will diabetes will bankrupt their health care system inside the coming decade. The U.S. has not run those numbers although we are not likely any better off. If you think that will health care is usually expensive right now, just wait until the aging baby boomer population as well as the current Generation XL take a toll on the system. Our behavior is usually unsustainable.
Not all overweight kids or adults have their own diet to blame, although most do. A few have a hard time losing the extra fat or keeping that will off even with Great diets. Some researchers believe that will chemicals we have released into the environment are somewhat responsible.
In fact, we have released over 6,000,000 chemicals into the environment since the onset of the industrial revolution. that will turns out that will some of these that will we get a lot of contact with mimic the female sex hormone, estrogen, as well as act in unpredictable ways – especially inside the female body. Unfortunately, This kind of means that will some people have to work much harder than others.
We were built for lean times
When that will comes down to that will, our bodies are not designed for abundance. We store energy very efficiently to prepare for those lean times when we will need to tap into that will fat. although those lean times never come anymore. We have become accustomed to our indulgent behaviors as well as feel entitled to our cakes, cookies as well as desserts. We are taking our lifestyles for granted as well as that will is usually killing us.
Some folks are taking notice. More people are joining gyms, getting on regular exercise routines as well as watching what they eat. Society is usually becoming polarized – those improving their health as well as those neglecting their health.
We are winding the rubber band very tight as well as have only two choices. We can keep winding that will until that will breaks or we can begin to unwind that will as well as relieve the tension. We can continue to take our families down the road of poor health or do something to reverse that will. The longer we wait, the less of a choice we will have – have you made your decision yet?
