One in three children is too fat in the United States. The factors that contribute to this epidemic vary, but poor nutrition and decreasing body is most often cited. Schools are slow to participate in the fight against obesity in the fight, and the National School Lunch Program continues to serve the same unhealthy dishes from past decades: full of calories and low nutritional value.
The change has taken place with the aim of providing more efficient and nutritious options to students across the country. Recovering the Children's Code Act passed in the Senate, but has been postponed to the presidency until the decision was taken on December 3, 2010.
So the parliamentary elections take place, the kids in America are also thinking. On the other hand, when American students get back to school, they need to burn the high school volume sold in vending machines and low-school days in the service house.
Another initiative to fight childhood obesity is Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution.
Jamie Oliver, a famous cookie from Essex, became famous through several TV shows, such as: The Naked Chef, Jamie's Kitchen, Jamie's School Dinners, Jamie's Head, Jamie at Home and Jamie Food Ministry.
The latest show, Jamie Oliver Food Revolution, focuses on educating families about food and nutrition in order to counter the weight of childhood obesity. The series begins by focusing on Huntington, West Virginia, which has been referred to as the world's most unhealthy city in America, and teaches the first step in basic education. With a three-month real-time trial of the city, Jamie meets the obstacles of naysayers and stubborn parents who do not want to make healthy decisions for their families. Jamie manages to let the public know of poor schooling and general food revolution in the food revolution, but his project has only begun.
National School Lunch Program
The National Register The lunch program has a system to assist over 101,000 schools with free or discounted meals for pensioners. Schools need to match 30% of federal funds in the program, based on the funding they received in 1980. These corresponding funds need to be applied for in each country. Because of this, government funding for the program is much less than 30% of the claim, resulting in budget shortage and sub-program for lunch.
About 95% of schools participate in the program and meals awarded to students in 2009: 52% were free and 10% lowered. However, this still accounts for 38% of the low income markers who have to pay full rates for lunch and breakfast.
The nutritional value of the school system is only 30% of the participating schools.
The combination of shortage of shortages and lack of nutritional care schools has been a major concern and is one of the issues discussed in the review of the new Nutrition Act. Schools have trouble providing lunch and breakfast to their students, as well as providing sufficient staff to serve students.
The private sector's private sector
The private sector has begun developing a number of products to address this problem faced by many schools. Some companies have developed the solution of having "automatic hot food machines". These machines are vending machines that are customized to release hot food using an internal microwave to heat chilled meals as they are purchased by each student. Students have the opportunity to study student identification documents in some models.
Some food companies, which are convened by the school board, take their business into their own hands by creating creative equipment for unusual rights. For example, instead of containing fat with strong fat, some food companies are roasting potatoes in rosemary and garlic.
Affordable nutrition has not yet come true in the United States.
