So I’ve been hearing a lot of debate regarding the issue of children’s health with child obesity on the rise, which got me questioning, of course. At what age should one become health conscious? How far are parents going to reflect their healthy lifestyles on their children? Are health-obsessive adults depriving/penalizing their children? Do certain types of food add to childhood? At what point should parents start to intervene with children’s eating habits, especially if they don’t exercise a healthy lifestyle? Is it a matter of hypocrisy or just a matter of wanting optimal health for your child even if you don’t exercise that on your own life?
Yes, yes, all very debatable and open-ended, but I wanted to get the analytical juices flowing. I guess this post will act as a precursor to some issues I will be researching for future posts. But, as I like to do, I thought I would end my foreshadowing post with some comedic relief. One can almost always depend on Saturday Night Life to catch the humor in anything controversial. Enjoy!
