Nutrition plays a vital part in our lives. Through nutrition we can stop a lot of health problems in our lives alone. A lot of health problems that have been rising over the past decades are preventable. Not only can we help prevent health issues like heart disease and diabetes, but we can also decrease the cost of healthcare bills, obesity costs you Americans 10% of your healthcare bills, $150 billion a year. In 10 years it is set to double(Oliver, 2010). It all starts by learning about the foods youre eating. If someone doesnt know about what is healthy for them and what it can do for their body they are not likely to eat it making them more susceptible to health problems in the near future not only for themselves but the future generations as well.
Through nutrition alone illness like heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes can all be prevented through diet alone. The leading factor of deaths in the United States is caused by Poor diet that can ultimately be prevented. The top three causes of death are heart disease, all cancers, and stroke which are all diet related diseases. That is why it is so important to be teaching children at a young age about healthy foods. Children are like sponges and they will absorb the things that you teach them. However if one person doesnt want to take the time to help teach a class of students about being healthy they will never know.
Teaching children about having a good healthy diet will increase not only their lifespan but those influenced by them, by many years. If a child learns how to cook simple dishes that are healthy and quick it will set them for success in the future. Jaime Oliver supports this statement by stating, if you can cook recession money doesnt matter. If you can cook time doesnt matter (Oliver, 2010). Having nutrition taught in schools will help set up children for the future. The information provided in this video agrees with what we have learned in nutrition in our textbook reading. children should be provided with a rich nutrient diet that gives them the vitamins in my house that they need to grow.

Summarize what you learned. Do you agree or disagree that this should be implemented at all elementary schools? Explain how this might affect the nutrition that children receive during their school day.
I learned that there are new and different methods that are being approached to aid in healthy development and time for children to grow outside of the home. Many considerations involve the best method to establish for children, even though most methods will almost always have a downside to the argument. The first article, Effects of the Reverse Lunch was very interesting to read and was thought-provoking to me. There were points mentioned that had me thinking about what is best. There were also parts where a contrasting view on reverse lunch was not really explained but briefly mentioned. In the second article Benefits of Recess Before Lunch, Im not sure if times have changed since when I was in school, which was not long ago cause Im 19, but recess has always been before lunch, I believe it was after 2nd period, or second class; recess or nutrition would be about 5-7 minutes. The last page, Testimonials rather confused me, but throughout the article (the first page), there were things that I disagreed with and saw differently from when I was in school. Even though we had recess before lunch, I still saw many children rush through their lunchtime to go outside. The statistics or research that said are calmer and ready to get to work immediately instead of needing cool-down time (Benefits of Recess Before Lunch, n.d.), I dont find to be true. Children play during or after lunch, and they will always come into class with the outside, playing behavior.
Here are my thoughts on the Effects of the Reverse Lunch Schedule: I dont necessarily agree or disagree with the reverse lunch schedule. While I think it can be a good idea to implement in school, there are some other considerations that I thought of while reading. First, there are some great points made in the article about why it is best, and from what I remember when I was in school, children would be loud, distracted, etc. coming back from lunch and playing. Of course, play and exercise wire us to be active, and sitting down to hear a lecture or lesson can be challenging. To come from a very high state of activeness to tone it down to just listening and trying to pay attention is hard to do. The behavior increases in class because of the excitement they got from playing. Switching the schedule of play to eating lunch in peace, therefore is a pro and beneficial. Because this builds up their appetite, they expended some energy, and they eat without rushing and they can refuel, then attend class calmly with attention and alertness, and will prove to be better in class. The other side of the argument, the con, would be the children who do not eat breakfast or have a specific, daily schedule of eating, and children with medical conditions (children who have sugar level, blood pressure, diabetes, hypo or hyperglycemia problems, and so on) will be affected. This was something that was not mentioned in the article at all, along with the specific type of contrasting belief mentioned. Children who did not eat that day or every day for breakfast, and kids that have a medical/health condition that involves a severe drop in levels, are not a good idea. Children who have or experience this will already feel weak, hungry, and have low energy. Letting them play outside with nothing or little in their system will already feel slightly to moderately weak to severely sick before their lunchtime, and will result in an illness, a potential health problem, a visit to the nurses office, etc. Postponing their mealtime, and having them expend energy that they do not have much of can lead to problems. During recess and in their free play and games, children use basic aerobic and bone-strengthening activities, such as running, hopping, skipping, and jumping, to develop movement patterns and skills. They alternate brief periods of moderate- and vigorous intensity activity with periods of light-intensity physical activity or rest. Any episode of moderate- or vigorous intensity physical activity, however brief, counts toward the key guidelines for children and adolescents ages 6 through 17 years. (Paris & Laff, 2020, sec. 4.2), Due to the weak state that some children might already be in, with a combination of such exercises will lead to a high possibility of fainting, becoming sick, a medical visit after or during play, and so on. After an episode of any type of condition, it does set the mood, headspace, and physical well-being for the rest of the day. Not to mention that they would still have 2-3 more classes left to finish their school day. There may be an opposing argument to this condition, but, yes, some children can bounce back quickly after feeling ill or weak when they finished eating, but it will be an everyday habit or experience to feel ill, that they would have to go through for a while to not feel that way anymore, and this can take some time. But why risk and fluctuate the problems and possibility of illnesses?
