...A healthy school nutrition environment encompasses more than food and beverage choices available in the lunch line. It also includes appropriate meal schedules and serving times, dining atmosphere, food/beverage consumption in the classroom, food and beverage fund-raisers, availability of and access to vending machines, behaviors role-modeled by staff, nutrition education at school, physical activity, and generally the messages about eating and physical activity that students receive at school. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), in collaboration with many national nutrition and school organizations, identified six components of a healthy school nutrition environment. Each one is important and affects the nutrition and physical activity in a child’s school life. Healthy eating and physical activity are essential for students to achieve their full academic and physical potential, mental growth, and lifelong health and well-being. Schools influence students’ eating and physical activity patterns. In a school committed to a healthy nutrition environment, every member of the education team makes nutrition and physical activity top priorities every day. The hectic lifestyle of most families in the United States relies heavily on fast foods and leaves little time for regular physical activity. Such lifestyles have significantly affected the health of our nation’s children. Many students arrive at school with empty stomachs, while others sip sodas and munch on high fat foods ...

...Do you prefer shopping online or Brick-and-Mortar? That is the question… It is three days before the kids are out of school for Christmas vacation. A cold, wet, rainy afternoon and I still have a few more hours of this long boring work day. I realize that I have not had the time to finish my shopping for the gifts that need to be under that tree on Christmas morning, and I know that with the children out of school, it is going to be next to impossible to sneak any shopping in unnoticed. I think to myself, what should I do? Should I make use of this otherwise long drawn out free time that I am required to sit at this desk and do a little internet shopping, or should I take a more traditional approach and wait until I have someone to watch the kids and do my Christmas shopping on foot? I mean, why not make a day of it and have comfort in knowing that I can actually see the toys that I purchase and take them home the same day? I think to myself, does taking the easy way out make the gift any less special? Which would you choose? There are so many options available with shopping online, all in a matter of a few seconds, and a few clicks. Who really wants to get out in a cold, dreary day like today when we can get the same results, spend the same amount of money, and save a great deal of time by finishing any last minute shopping online? While both shopping online and in the store are one and the same, there are also many differences like convenience, privacy, risks, time, and......

...Why Should We Eat Healthy and Do Exercise? Introduction Eating healthy and exercising should be a part of every person’s day to day routine. However, these two phrases mean different things to different people. It is common for Canadian adults to eat fast food, such as McDonald’s, and not exercise; which is why one of the leading causes of death in Canada is from Cardiovascular Disease. Modern day information assists in helping Canadians learn more about what types of food will supply the most energy to their bodies and what kind of exercise is beneficial for everyone’s lifestyle. “Why Should We Eat Healthy & Exercise?” explains why food and exercising is so important for everyone and what the gains and losses can become a part of one’s life. Importance of Exercise According to Stats Canada, the total amount of adults that are moderately active is 24 percent and only 20 percent of adults are active. More than half of the adult population (56 percent) is inactive which again, could potentially be the reason that the major causes of deaths in Canada are because of disease and cancer (Hales & Lauzon, 2008, p75). As important as physical exercise is for loosing excess weight and feeling good it is also extremely important long and healthy life.

...Staying Healthy And Eating Right Staying healthy and eating right is a lifestyle that many people should consider. A juicy hamburger from McDonalds dripping with special sauce topped with cheese is not exactly considered a healthy meal. Our society today is busy and on the go at all times. It is so much easier to stop and get fast food and then continue on. However, we should stop and think; is it really worth it to not eat right and exercise? Studies have shown, people that eat right and exercise live longer. Eating fattening foods clogs your heart with cholesterol and fat. People that do not exercise and continue to eat unhealthy foods will slow their metabolism. This is why over 70% of our society are overweight today. My grandfather has had problems with his heart in the past mostly because he was very overweight and eating the wrong foods. The doctor advised him to exercise and eat right. Now, after two years of following this advice, his heart is stronger than ever. The doctor informed him that at least ten years has been added to his life. Exercising and eating right really does help you to live longer. Eating healthy foods and exercising also helps to build persons self-esteem. Many people who are overweight do not feel good about themselves. They want to be thinner but instead of doing it the right way, they try crash diets that seem to always fail or do nothing at all about their condition. If we would exercise at least 45 minutes per day, 3 to 4 times per week, it......

...need to be taught the right ways to eat and exercise. Parent/caregivers need to support the children in their life to live a healthy life to avoid obesity in children. In today’s society it is easier for kids to sit around playing video games and snacking than playing outside and having healthy meals. “Childhood obesity has reached epidemic proportions in developed countries. “In the United States, the prevalence of overweight for children increased by 182% between 1971–74 and 1999–2000.” (Foley. p.1) Children have a better chance at living a healthy life style and preventing obesity when they are taught how to eat healthy, exercise and gain knowledge of a healthy life style. Teaching children how to eat healthy is a big part in helping children stay away from obesity. People only know what we are taught and that is the same for children. If a child is never thought what to eat and how different foods are good for you they will never know. It is easier for kids to snack and parents think just because it bad for them, at least they are eating. Children need to beat taught what foods will help them become strong and help their bones gone strong. Besides teaching them what is good to, they need to learn how to eat. For example they need to eat three healthy meals daily with two snacks a day. Children need to learn at a younger age about eating healthy, when to eat and portion sizes will help them stay on track as they get older. Exercising is very important for children......

...Shopping Shopping is an activity in which people search the available goods with intent to buy suitable ones. It is a necessary thing in modern life, because every day we need such things as food, clothes, shoes, etc. Shopping is a desire and sometimes is a source of entertainment. Many people choose shopping as their hobby as it gives pleasure. Besides it can be very useful to go shopping in the sales, because you can find a lot of special prices. However shopping isn’t only buy, but also look some fashion things as some people just go shopping by watching not buying things.  A lot of people like to go shopping when they have special feelings. Sometime they feel happy or sad, in this case they usually go shopping and it helps to change their mood. For people whose hobby is shopping there are a lot of shopping malls. They are very big and beautiful, full of shops and places where men can have a rest and children can have some fun, while women and girls are wasting their salaries. But as for me shopping is a daily routine. If I go shopping, I always buy things quickly and usefully. For example, my recent purchase was jeans. I just went to a department store, saw one that I really like. Then I bought it right away, and that didn’t take me a lot of time. To buy some small things, electronics or modern technology I use Internet. Nowadays online shopping is very easy. The only thing I have to do is going to the internet page, choose the product I want, find the eligible price......

...Healthy Eating Chris Williams Com/172 10/27/2014 University of Phoenix Healthy Eating A person who eats a healthier diet or improves their diet will have less risk of getting type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancers. A person who is obese has an increased chance to becoming type 2 diabetic. When a person eats healthier, their chances of becoming obese are slim. Reducing their weight by 5-7 percent can greatly reduce the chances of developing diabetes ("The Facts about Diabetes: A Leading Cause of Death in the U.S.", N.D.). To reduce your risk of heart disease, a person needs to have control over their cholesterol, blood pressure, and weight. Eating a healthy balanced diet can help a person achieve this. It also reduces a person’s chance at having a stroke ("Nutrition’s Role in Disease Prevention", N.D.). It is shocking to know even a healthy diet can prevent cancer. With obesity being at an all-time high in America, and causing a lot of health problems, people are not eating healthy as they should. The result of this is people catching diseases like diabetes, having strokes and heart failure from clog arteries. Let’s not forget Cancer. The reason for this is that the body is lacking all of the vitamins and minerals and other nutrients that comes from healthy eating, and not to mention key ingredients that can ward off cancer. By consuming a healthier diet you can reduce the risk of developing many different types of cancer to include; uteral,...

...Socioeconomic Status and Food-Insecurity in Single-Mother-Families Rana Hassan & Douaa Mostafa Shopping List Project, Highway to Health 2000A Tuesday, November 18th , 2014 Introduction: In Canada, women’s health is affected by several social, economic and physical determinants. Single mothers are women, who are single, divorced, widowed or separated and care for one or more child with no assistance from a spouse. Single-mother families constitute 13% of Canadian families and they are more likely to experience a lower quality of life compared to families with two parents [3]. Also, poverty rates among families led by single mothers remain unacceptably high compared to the other demographic groups [3]. In 1999, poverty rate in single mothers was 51.8%, which is five-fold greater than the poverty rate among two-parent families (10.4%) [2]. Despite Canada’s efforts to reduce poverty among single-mother-families, the percentage of poor children living with their mothers continued to grow substantially over the last two decades [3]. Many studies conducted in Canada and the United States demonstrate that single mothers are significantly more likely to be young (less than 25 years of age), generally unhealthy, on welfare and poorly educated [9]. Also, single mothers tend to have higher rates of unemployment due to their deteriorating health states and their lower educational backgrounds [9]. The financial situation of a single-mother-family is worsened by additional......
