Hemmingsen 1 Trey Hemmingsen Mrs. JoAnne Morenz English Composition 101A 23 September 2006 Most Kids Are Fat Children in this generation are becoming more and more obese every day. I think that it is mainly the parents fault. The other two reasons are heredity, and the child’s low exposure to physical activity. Many people disagree that it is the parent’s fault that kids are obese, but I do not see how it can really be the kid’s fault, because they do not really have a choice in the matter. Obesity can be defined as an excessive accumulation of body fat. To be considered obese, a boy’s total body fat must be twenty-five percent or higher than their total body weight, and a girls must be thirty-two percent higher than their total body weight. Statistics show that between five and twenty five percent of children are obese. Obesity in children is also expected to be on the rise. I see little children every day in my school, and many of them are what I consider obese. I have also noticed that schools, (our school included), have tried many things to keep the obesity rate down.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
