Academic IELTS Writing Task 2 Topic 13

MODEL ESSAY 09:

It is true that there is a growing trend in obesity children in industrialized nations in recent years. While this issue is being pointed at the wide spread fast food restaurants, I would argue that parents should take full responsible for growing a healthy child.

To begin with, the expanding of convenient food stores may not be the cause of overweight children. Although some of the foods served in these restaurants may contain high saturated fat items, there are other factors that could also result in gaining weight as well. Firstly, if children consumed excessive amount of unhealthy snacks, sugary soda drinks, or prepackaged foods, they could also become obsessed. Secondly, even if the family did visit the fast food outlets for meals, parents could still substitute unhealthy items with a healthier menu, such as having French fries replaced with vegetables or salad.

In addition, parents certainly play a vital role in providing a healthy diet for their children. With the invention of the Internet, it is possible to obtain information of food ingredients, daily nutrient proportion needed in each food category and healthy recipes within minutes. Therefore, learning about how to prepare nutrient meals have never been easier. I believe supplying healthy snacks for children during school days and preparing a healthy balanced meal in the evening in routine could lead to a healthy body.

However, we must not be forgotten that ensuring children to have adequate amount of physical exercises is also a critical contributor to their good health.
In conclusion, I believe that parents should be the ones who play a crucial role in up bringing their children in a healthy environment.
