In brief: Eating healthy
If anerican want to eat healthy, we need to go back to basics.
We need to eat as a family and try to eat more fruits and vegetables. We also need to put restrictions on fast food companies to make them add more healthy food to their items too.

In brief: Lead by example
Lead by example- if they see parents eating healthier-they might be encouraged to do the same.
Bring healthy snacks to movies like fruit, instead of the usual movie fare. Cut out sugar drinks, drink water. Don't keep junk food in the house. Prepare your meals for work and try to do the same for them for school. Eating healthier sometimes involves planning
