Human health is deteriorating due to poor eating habits, bad dietary decisions, lack of physical exercise and inadequate sleep.  This tends to be exacerbated in lower income or dual income households where diet and lifestyle is often based on convenience, and not heath

Coupled with poor food choices is decreasing physical activity in favor of television, video games and other non-physical activities.  This is often aggravated by schools which are increasingly eliminating physical education from curriculums

The combination of poor diet, insufficient physical exercise and inadequate sleep is leading to rapidly increasing incidences of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other chronic illnesses that affect brain development, energy, attention, concentration and performance

Children need to understand the importance of a nutritious diet, physical exercise, and adequate sleep as physical health impacts so many aspects of their lives including self confidence, personal well being, energy, performance in school and sports, and social relationships
