The amount of time spend on sport and exercise should be increased in schools in order to tackle the problem of overweight children? Do you think this is the best way to deal with the problem? What other solutions can you suggest?
In my opinion, Sports and exercise should be the main factor for our children to maintain their fitness. Schools should not only be responsible for our children's mental state and growth, but also for keeping our children's physical health under check. Obesity has become such a huge issue in our world that every third person is suffering from obesity, not to mention the diseases that comes with it, such as, type 1 and type 2 Diabetes, Heart risks, cancer and so on. In our culture, Schools have just become a place where we think students should gain A* in every academic subject and think of physical education as a secondary element. This thinking is just plain wrong and we need to take some harsh so that we can easily overcome this issue. Teaching children about their physical condition and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle is pretty important in my opinion this should start in schools. Schools should conduct special assemblies to teach the younger students about the importance of exercise and sports. Schools could also organize different events in-order to encourage the students to play different sports and so on. But in my opinion, only increasing the time spent on sports in schools to solve this problem isn't enough. We need to do more in order to fully take control of this growing situation. First of all, we can easily join hands with parents and show them that just by increasing an hour of outdoor activities can drastically increases their child's physical condition. Obesity is growing like a cancer in our world, taking hold of everything, rotting away the beauty of this world. This is a serious issue and we need to tackle it as soon and as severely as possible.
