  1. It’s highly unfortunate, but these big-wig pharmaceutical companies love when people are unhealthy, because without it, they wouldn’t have the pills, creams, and shots to give out as much! Thanks for sharing and doing this study:))

    1. I definitely agree with you. However, although it is an utter fault of the big pharmaceutical companies, I still think that parents should need to focus on their kids eating habits. Some days ago I noted that a 10-12 year old kid was eating two double rolled cheese burger at McDonalds. As this was not enough his mother was forcing him to eat the fries too. Not the mention that the kid was already obese. I felt he looked cute but then all of sudden I felt pity for him.

      At this age if kids start gaining weight and becoming overweight they are going to harness all kinds of metabolic diseases. Not to mention that kids now have childhood diabetes secondary to increased BMI and obesity., This is ridiculous!!!

      I did a little research and found out some amazing information as below,
      chools lose money every day because it costs more money to prepare meals than the reimbursement they get from the federal government. In 2008, the government increased the NSLP subsidy to schools, to $2.57 per meal per student, but the cost to prepare the lunches rose to $2.88. And while schools that purchase foods directly from the USDA receive an additional 20 cents per meal, they’re still at an 11-cent deficit. That amount might seem trivial, but multiply it by the 29.6 million children participating in the NSLP and it comes out to a daily nationwide deficit of $3.2 million. For perspective, a middle school with 1,000 students would be $19,800 in the hole after just 1 year. ( Bornstein, 2008).

      And as a result in order to cover the deficit the schools have instead turned to offering “competitive foods.” These items aren’t part of the NSLP. They include foods of minimal nutrition — which can be sold in vending machines, school stores, and snack bars — as well as foods that don’t meet other USDA guidelines but that can be offered in the cafeteria (Bornstein, 2008).

      Obesity in children is a very big problem. I still consider that parents should give and provide homemade food and green vegetables to their children in their lunch boxes than allowing them to eat in the school’s cafeteria.

      Thank You once again for taking the interest and stopping by to leave a very valuable comment.
      Thank you..

To paraphrase President Obama's speech on 12/4/13 to the Center For American Progress: Our strength is grounded in our individuals, civic, religious and business leaders working and making things happen. But government can't stand on the sidelines; it can and should refocus our energies on building an economy that grows for everybody. I remain confident that the future still looks brighter than the past.
