In the article, Elizabeth Beeker explores the question, is school lunches causing child obesity.

Elizabeth really goes down into statistics of how the school lunches are one component of

obesity. She stated “With an epidemic of obesity among the young--the proportion of overweight

children is now 15 percent--experts say changes in school lunches offer the best chance of

weaning youths” Because there is a bunch of sugars in fats in the meals they give the kids. Dr.

david satcher stated “school meals as one of the eight major areas where Americans should begin

to battle fat” which means we should feed the kids more fruits and vegetables. Elizabeth wrote

this article clearly for the readers to speak out about it because it's a shame that these kids have to

go to school everyday and this is what they get for lunch. She expressed the situation into many

different statistics. This article taught me that school lunches are a big reason of child obesity.
