1 Yusuf, Penelope, Lauren, Diana Michele Domenech ENG 112 April 6, 2017 Ever since the no child left behind, school have taken away time from PE and have given the time to classes such as math and reading. There a fight for PE class to also become a core class in school and be just as important as reading and math. Schools can have teachers receive adequate training to be able to teach the class and come up with good curriculums to teach the classes. There are classes that are provided to teachers at no cost to train teachers in any time of physical activity setting. Schools should make the to give at least 60 minutes of the school day to PE and also allow the budget to expand to provide the PE class with equipment. With more equipment, teachers would be able to build a curriculum that includes fun activities that students world enjoy. Healthier kids start with what they eat. Children get, or should be getting, half of their daily intake of calories in school. This is why it is crucial for schools to make sure every child is getting healthier meals. Schools in the US typically spend around 30 minutes eating their lunch, which makes it hard to eat because it is usually where kids love to socialize as well.

2 grow their own fruits and vegetables. More plant-based food and fewer foods with preservatives. Healthier options should be available to kids and omit foods that are fried. Children could get involved with gardening if desired, this could also help children know better about gardening and where food comes from, teaching them to appreciate each meal for the work and love they put into growing their plants. If not at school then maybe at home on their own time so it doesn’t interfere with their classes. It could also be a good idea to bake the food instead. Using whole grain pasta instead of regular would also help. These substitutions can be easily made by a professional chef. Having chefs come to schools where they incorporate healthy foods that kids enjoy eating is an option that schools have been discussing doing. Along with the discussion is the budget, which is the reason why schools have a hard time trying to find healthier food options on a budget since healthier foods tend to be more expensive. Schools should make it a priority to fund healthier meals in schools and not make budget cuts in this area. Schools should also make an effort to meet local farmers that could provide the ingredients needed to make lunches so the school could get more organic foods and help local business people.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
