Junk food? No, thanks
In recent decades, because of less and less time available to families and thanks to the expansion of small and large retailers, people consume greater and greater amounts of processed foods and pre-cooked.
In families so you prefer to buy ready-made products rather than prepare them at home with healthy ingredients and which they know the origin.
Moreover, even with the arrival in the beautiful country of the big chains of fast-food, the people, and especially children, consume increasing amounts of fried foods and carbonated drinks, high-calorie and high-fat, with obvious consequences on the weight and the various disorders linked to it (diabetes, cholesterol etc.) which are increasing as a percentage even among the very young.
These elements ensure that the power supply, even when not excessive, remains in any case not healthy and rich in components harmful to the body.It is from this real emergency to escape from what is called junk food that was born the project Junk food? No, thanks.
This project is designed for primary school children, specifically for those who are between 11 and 14 years old, due to the greater autonomy that is given to this age, who choose to eat foods of this kind rather than others.
The project includes a series of meetings in which the children will be placed in front of the consequences of excessive consumption of these products and will be directed towards more healthy alternatives.
The project will consist in real debates and exchanges of views in which students can see themselves as being able to prepare, even alone, in the house of the foods that preserve the flavor of “junk food” but with very different nutritional principles. In particular, he will be given tips on how to behave when they are outside the home (for example, prefer a pizza to a dinner at a fast food, choose a yogurt or a fruit salad for the fries etc.), It is in these situations that junk food eating increases dramatically.
