Drive-thru to obesityMariana MonroyFebruary 2013A look at why childhood obesity is rising quickly.
Many blame the parents, but I believethere are many more variables toblame.
Narrative• Pick kids up from school• Change clothes• Drive to dance class (or otherextracurricular activities)• Too late to make dinner so fastfood companies have made it easyto “run by” and get food….
After dance class.One of the girls is reading a homework assignment- Inthe car, on the way to get dinner.

emotionalAlthough we may think thefollowing pictures are “cute”,Our society is making it ok for kidsto learn bad eating habits.When in reality, as soon as they getinto their teen years or even pre-teenthat image drastically changes.Our society no longer sees it as“cute” but as obese and even ugly.
