In today’s world, boys and girls are consuming excessive amount of fast food, thus gaining weight and becoming overweight person. Because of this unhealthy practice of eating readymade food, they are developing complex health difficulties. There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that this is the case and I have strong reasons to support my view.

 

To begin with, it is immediately apparent that there is significant increment in number of junk food advertisements aimed and directed at children. Moreover there has been a huge addition to the number and range of fast food outlets. For an example, a popular fast food maker – McDonalds has doubled its presence in city as well as in countryside area to cope up with growing demand. They have also extended their marketing budget. All this activities indicates that kids are now used to and love to eat junk food.

 

I saw a group of schoolkids on the train last week who were all consuming chips and burgers along with soft drink. Apparently sad part was most of those kids were fat and were hardly able to bend their self. This was not the situation when I was a child at school. Barely there was a fat boy or girl in entire school as most of us used to bring healthy and homemade food.

 

I have a daughter and I find that it is parent’s responsibility to prepare nutritious food for their kids. Though it requires time and efforts but ultimately that will develop good diet routine. This in turn will help kids to become fit and healthy person and as we know health is wealth, there is no other better option that I can see to overcome this situation.

 

When all is said and done, it is plain to see that in this era of globalization where multinational companies are aggressive enough to sell their products – junk food by hook or crook, it is solely parent’s duty to take care of their kid’s health by spending more time and efforts so that they can avoid bad habit of eating unhealthy and innutritious food. If the problem is not addressed and ameliorated ASAP, it will quickly worsen.
