I don't know if it should be fixed right at the moment,but it is an issue that should be looked at. The problem has gotten out of hand, if its not fixed its going to get worse. The next generation might be the first in a long time to live less than the last.
I do think fixing childhood obesity should be a priority for the federal government. I know that they can't go house to house telling parents how to raise their children, but as a start, there could be more healthful meals in school cafeterias. And perhaps more physical education classes per week.
Fixing childhood obesity should be a priority for the federal government. This is because of the fact that childhood obesity is a serious situation for the United States of America. America is the fattest country in the world, and this is disgraceful. Government intervention in this problem is ideal for this reason.
The federal government must act strongly and decisively in order to combat childhood obesity. We have a public health crisis in this nation, and it's primarily due to obesity. By spending larger amounts of money on nutrition education and physical education, healthy school lunch programs, and other activities, we might have a shot at a healthier tomorrow.
While it is a shameful indictment on the American lifestyle, I do not believe that the Federal Government should have the authority to interfere in the private life of any citizen, even if they are children. The raising of children needs to be a function of the parents, not the government. If the government must be involved, it should focus attention on the teaching of preventative health to adults who will pass the knowledge on to their children.
