Our First Lady’s platform is on childhood obesity and she has worked with the FDA to improve the standards of school lunches and has started a website Let’s Move (“Michelle Obama Pledges to ‘Fight until the Bitter End’ For Lunch Standards”). There are more than nine million children between the ages of six to nine that are considered overweight. Also, 70% of children who are considered obese are more likely to continue being obese into adulthood (“Obesity Statistics”). My research question will focus on what causes child obesity. My thesis is that technology is the main cause of child obesity. Throughout my research paper, I hope to educate my audience on the problem of how vital childhood obesity is becoming and how to prevent it so that American children will be healthier. The benefit to this paper is that it will inform my readers about the causes of child obesity and will encourage them to prevent it. I want to write about this topic because I struggled with child obesity, and I finally made a change in my life through eating healthier and exercising. In addition, I hope that I will further educate myself on the causes of child obesity so I can be aware of signs to look for in my children. Also, I am religious and believe that I have to be physically healthier in order to serve God. My intended audience will be parents who have children who are obese and want to help them make a change in their lives.
