From the data collected we found the homemakers say that their kids prefer fast food over home cooked food.The parents also opt for branded packaged food as it is convenient.
Another reason found was that these students live in a nuclear family setup .Most of their mothers are career oriented hence readymade food items are preferred.
From the statistical data collected we have understood the younger students in the school are more in number in overweight as well as in obese compared to the elder students.
As a value addition the school has also purchased an electronic digital weighing scale
