Confessions of a Modern Parent
Obesity Pandemic: Are kids addicted to food?
Friday, 31 July
The modern world is getting fatter. In the West, our children are the largest generation yet.
But what is at the route of this?
It's common to blame junk food, advertising, too much sugar and fat. But is there something more?
Are we becoming addicted to food? And is it ultimately a personal responsibility, or does the government and the food economy play a larger part than we realised?
Join Nadia and Mark as they discuss all these points and more. In this heartfelt conversation, both discover the role food has played in their lives and how some of these bad habits may have trickled down.
They learn how to positively approach meal times and snacking and discuss the role of the media, advertising, large corporations and governments in keeping us healthy and safe.
Find out the answers to these questions and many more in this episode of Confessions of A Modern Parent.
And they take questions and suggestions from listeners on their experiences in parenting roles.
