When it comes to children and school, it has become easier and easier for them to grab junk food from the vending machine and just go. So this tells you that schools have become a lot more lenient on what children consume as well. What needs to happen is we need to go back to the good old days when children would play outdoors and do activities; such as go to the park and play and run, compete against one another, ride their bikes, and play tag. Another great idea is to go back to incorporating healthier snacks into diet; junk food is not the way. When a child leaves school they go home they sit in front of a television chips, candy, and soda are usually their favorite snacks and meals by choice. They play video games all day long or sit and do nothing constructive to maintaining a good health. The best way to incorporate a balanced and healthy diet into children’s lives is for both the parents and the children’s schools to be on the same page with meal planning.

The greatest aspect of controlling childhood obesity is to have more set strict standards in place for preventing and managing obesity. Being involved and aware of sufficient and helpful information from places such as the department of health and human services, pediatric offices, as well as websites like the CDC all have necessary detailed material to prevent childhood obesity in the early years. It is recommended that more school based, as well as after school programs, need to implement these ideas as a way of improving the dietary and physical activates and roles of communities when it comes to healthy dieting (Lueke, 2011).
