OUR CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE
As adults, we realize that the real future lies in the hands of our children and grandchildren, and our first priority should be nurturing and educating them.
We would like to believe that North Americans live longer than most other people in the world. Unfortunately, this is not the case. In fact, The World’s Life Expectancy (2018 Est.) shows that the United States ranks 53th.
The 2018 life expectancy for North Americans is 79.25 years (Est.), ranking below that of Monaco, Japan, Singapore, and Macau, which have the longest life expectancies (89 years for Monaco). The country with the lowest life expectancy in the world is South Africa at 50 years.
This graph points to the United States as the country where there is greater obesity!
What can we conclude?
We certainly know that the increase in processed foods, super-sweetened soda and other beverages, and a colossal increase in portion sizes have contributed to the surge in obesity in the United States.
What does this mean for our children? Experts warn that the current generation of North American children will have shorter life expectancies than their parents. The current trend in obesity rates will lead to more cases of diabetes, cancer, and heart disease – just to name a few health conditions.
We can reverse these conditions by feeding our children nutritious meals and teaching them to eat vegetables, fruits and whole grains and to be physically active.
Let’s work together to make our country a healthier and prouder country. How do we start? WITH A HEALTHY BABY
Actually, a healthy baby begins before conception with the parents’ health, eating, and exercise habits. Once the baby is born, we have a new life and blessing to the family and to the world. We want this baby to be the healthiest baby ever in this challenging world.
Let’s strive to give our children the most nutritious food that North America has to offer. Let’s Make USA a Healthy Country Again!
