Mothers of Health Launches Campaign for Children’s Wellness
After an interview with Mothers of Health founder, Karla Farach, author of the children’s book, “The Adventures of Veggieman”, is affirmation of the most recent report by the CDC: Healthy Kid Receipts is missing in the American home and junk food consumption is on the rise due to the pandemic. Juxtaposed to the obesity statistics of children today, if things aren’t bad enough, the Coronavirus has American kids consuming more junk food than ever before. According to QSR Magazine, quick service leaders as McDonald’s and Chick-fil-A reveal that sales are on the rise.
American households are not taking the global pandemic as a warning sign that eating healthy for children is imperative to protecting our children from processed and junk food during these challenging times. Unfortunately, kids get over 13.8 percent of their daily caloric intake from fast food — a constant rise since 2015. Unfortunately, it is a fact that Black and Latino children tend to consume a larger amount of fast foods than other groups, and over one-third eat fast food daily—simply kid nutrition is missing.
This is the motivational trigger that inspired Karla Farach, a certified Health and Life coach residing in Greenwich, CT, to write “The Adventures of Veggieman” and to also offer parents a platform with information and tips about children’s health and wellness, at www.veggieman.com. “Children are raised in this media vacuum of junk food from advertisements, contests, promotional invitations and other incentives— and parents simply tend to give in to this quick fix to feed the family because they are struggling with time constraints. During the pandemic it’s even worse — the stress level in America right now is chaotic and giving in to the temptation of a quick meal or quick snack is overwhelming. So now more than ever empowering kids to make better choices is of extreme importance.
