Childhood Obesity

  1. 1. Trump Network<br />Ro Kendall<br />Core Market Leader<br />Trump Network<br />Independent Marketer Entrepreneur<br />
  2. 2. The Trump Network and YOU<br />I’m not here to sell you.<br />I don’t care if you like Trump or not.<br />Let’s talk about what matters!<br />
  3. 3. Our Children<br />In the U.S., the % of overweight children 6-11 y.o. has doubled in the past 25 yrs.<br />% of overweight teenagers have tripled.<br />1 out of 3 children (30 million kids) is too heavy.<br />Obesity affects all racial and ethnic groups, and all socioeconomic levels.<br />
  4. 4. Obesity Epidemic<br />This crisis facing our kids mirrors the epidemic of overweight and obesity in adults, except the stakes are much higher.<br />The consequences are greater because they will be carrying more weight for much longer.<br />This is occurring during the critical stages of childhood growth & development.<br />
  5. 5. Childhood Obesity<br />Pediatricians now regularly diagnose obesity-related conditions in children that used to strike ONLY middle-aged & elderly adults:<br />High Blood Pressure<br />High Cholesterol<br />Fatty Liver<br />Sleep Apnea<br />Just 15 years ago, we virtually NEVER saw a child with Type II Diabetes. <br />Now, Type II Diabetes, previously called Adult-Onset Diabetes, affects children as young as 8 years old.<br />
  6. 6. Childhood Obesity-Emotional & Social Functioning<br />5th & 6th grade students were shown drawings of children with various physical conditions<br />1 obese, 1 in a wheelchair, 1 with crutches, and so on…<br />Whom they would like to have as a friend? They picked the obese child last.<br />Other research shows that obesity in children impairs a person’s quality of life as severely as having cancer.<br />
  7. 7. What happens when they get older?<br />Studies show that when overweight adolescents reach adulthood:<br />Less likely to have finished school<br />Less likely to be married<br />More likely to be living in poverty<br />Children w/Type II Diabetes face:<br />Heart attack<br />Kidney failure<br />Amputation<br />Other life-threatening complications before they turn 30!<br />
  8. 8. Life Expectancy<br />Overweight adolescent girls have a 3-fold increased risk of dying by middle age compared to lean girls (even after taking into account other lifestyle factors that could affect health..ie. Smoking)<br />Study done with University of Chicago concluded that life expectancy may decline in the United States by up to 5 years in the next few decades, roughly equal to the impact of ALL cancers combined, as a direct result of the childhood obesity epidemic.<br />
  9. 9. Personal Responsibility or Social Responsibility?<br />Some argue it’s unfair to blame fast food & fake food industry. <br />They say it comes down to personal responsibility: parents are free to choose healthier foods and to teach their children. That’s what the food industry wants us to believe.<br />How can we when we live in a toxic environment, overwhelmed by forces beyond our control?<br />
  10. 10. Food Industry<br />Put profits over pounds<br />Corporate wealth over our children’s well-being.<br />Food companies pay advertising executives top salaries to convince children to consume highest-calorie, lowest-quality products imaginable!<br />Studies clearly show, kids are more apt to nag their parents for foods they see advertised on TV and less likely to eat unadvertised foods…<br />When have you seen an ad for broccoli, zucchini or cauliflower?<br />
  11. 11. Food Industry<br />Ok, turn off the TV..but these foods are EVERYWHERE!<br />Convenience stores<br />Supermarkets<br />Highway rest stops<br />Playgrounds, vending machines<br />Friend’s homes<br />SCHOOLS!!<br />It’s so easy, so convenient, so normal to choose fake food. Besides, they taste pretty good!<br />
  12. 12. Fake Food Industry<br />Biologically, humans are born with an innate preference <br />sugar, fat, and salt, nutrients necessary for infant growth. (breastmilk)<br />Food manufacturers exploit our survival mechanisms by deliberately making their products extra-sweet, extra-fatty, extra-salty, adding artificial flavor enhancers to make us crave them even more.<br />Food companies incessantly advertise these products to children during a stage of life when they are highly susceptible to manipulation!<br />The result: taste preferences become arrested in an “infantilized” state of development.<br />Chemically manipulated flavor becomes the norm. <br />Eventually, an apple doesn’t taste sweet, vegetables are totally inedible.<br />
  13. 13. Supersized Fake Foods<br />Our children are hooked on calorie-dense, nutrient-poor fake foods. Plus, it’s supersized!<br />Loose the ability to regulate food intake.<br />Research shows that young children tend to eat the same amount at a meal REGARDLESS of whether they’re given in smaller or larger portions <br />“Satiety” cues tell them when they are full.<br />Older kids lose these cues or their ability to recognize and respond to these cues.<br />
  14. 14. Convenience Foods<br />Modern life makes us so vulnerable to the influences of advertising-we’ve stopped cooking!<br />Our generation eats away from home more often than any other in human history.<br />In the past, most food that children consumed was prepared by people who knew and loved them.<br />Now, we have delegated this fundamental responsibility to strangers who’s primary consideration is profit, not our health.<br />
  15. 15. End the Food Fight<br />Overwhelmed?<br />You may have begun to pack your child’s lunch instead of relying on cafeteria food.<br />You may have convinced other parents to join you in offering wholesome snacks during play dates.<br />You may have encouraged your child to be more physically active.<br />Fun physical activities replace TV viewing.<br />Fake food no longer fills your pantry. It’s stocked with wholesome foods.<br />Dinners are planned and prepared on a schedule.<br />
  16. 16. Ending the Food Fight<br />But let’s not stop here.<br />Having made peace at home, your family can join together with other families.<br />You can reach out into the community to help clean up the toxic environment.<br />
  17. 17. Ending the Food Fight<br />Working with your schools and communicating with elected officials to bring about sensible policy changes to reduce childhood obesity.<br />Vending machines filled with nourishing foods<br />Fast food restaurants as we know them today, close for lack of business, replaced by restaurants serving nutritious meals.<br />Ultimately, we all benefit.<br />
  18. 18. The Trump Network and YOU<br />With The Trump Network and YOU we can end Childhood Obesity.<br />Learn what The Trump Network has in store for America.<br />The Trump Network will be a huge success story in America and those who recognize it early will thrive.<br />THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME!!! <br />
