WEEK 7 by Sharon Beer-Korver Author
EATING HABITS WHAT ARE YOURS?
As the world evolves at an ever faster pace, food has become something of a problem. Not only do people have less time to prepare and cook meals but many are concerned about the quality of food they are buying. Not only are some foods depleted in terms of nutrient content but many contain large amounts of preservatives.
Billions of dollars are spent on marketing and advertising campaign’s designed to ‘brainwash’ and manipulate us into thinking that there is an ‘easy way out’ when it comes to eating. In reality we are becoming a society where we eat more often and eat more takeaway and pre-packaged food because we are trying to eat with greater time-efficiency. At the same time we exercise less due to increasing workloads and heavier commitments in our daily lives.
In this day and age our priorities have changed and sometimes they have not changed in ways which would have us heading in the right direction. Childhood obesity grows and diabetes and heart problems rise; not only in adults but also in children. At the forefront of the medical industry, which seeks to keep us well, there is a growing fear that we will become obese and unhealthy. Our medical system is already under extreme pressure, so what happens when these diseases increase? Are we on the right track anymore? Have we realised that our priorities have turned in the wrong direction? Are we pointing our children in the right direction in regard to food and health?
These are key questions we need to ask ourselves and the foundation of why I have always felt a responsibility to the younger generation which is, after all, our future.
Without good health you have nothing. Life is health and health is life!
Ask a sick person what they want and they will tell you they want to be healthy again!
This program is designed to help guide children into a way of thinking which sees that exercising can be fun and creative. It also seeks to teach them that exercise can be incorporated into their daily lives in a variety of ways.
