Junk Food Diet And Childhood Obesity

When I was a very young child, before I became a vegan, junk food was not a regular part of my household diet. Yes, I had Burger King, Mc Donald’s, pizza, ice cream, sweets, and potato chips from time to time, but a steady habit was never made out of eating those particular foods.

I was a well-fed child raised on home-cooked vegetables, fruit, meats, poultry and seafood such as lamb chops, cube steak, meat loaf, stew beef and potatoes, chicken, turkey and certain types of fish.

My mother kept me healthy and I was slim in size within proportion, and within accordance to my age and specific nutritional needs.

To each his or her own, however, it is not wise for parents or guardians over young children to allow them to constantly indulge within the routine of consuming unhealthy junk foods on a regular basis.

Lifestyle behaviors as these promote overall ill-health, including serious ailments like heart disease and diabetes early on or later in life. Some may even be prone to eventual premature death.

A diet poor in nutritional value and high in fat will also contribute to obesity.

No child should lay around to constantly spend all or most of their day lazy and inactive from exercise to just desire a continuous appetite for food.
