Child Obesity

It says, I say and So

It says

"The committee also reported the "distressing" and "most alarming" number of 55 per cent of First Nations children living on reserves, and 41 per cent off reserves, are overweight or obese."

I say

This is a huge problem. Many First Nations families live in poverty, and don't have enough money to buy nutritional and healthy foods. Because of this, many families have to survive on Lunchables, Kraft Dinner, and other processed but cheap foods that don't provide close to enough nutrients.

And so

Something has to be done about this. This trend cannot go on. The government has to do something to provide First Nations students with healthier meals, and get them to exercise more. They need to raise awareness about this issue, because it is a serious one.
