Child Hunger in NZ

Child Hunger in NZ
Adapted from “Child Hunger” by Ryan Laatz

Have you ever had to look into the eyes of a child and tell him that there is nothing to eat tonight? This reality for around 15 million children in America every day. This is also a prominent issue in New Zealand, where one in seven families live in poverty and 220,000 children go hungry. This means that they are missing meals or going the whole day without food. Without getting the proper nutrition, these children are not able to fulfill their potential and may be affected by poor health and a lower life expectancy.

Why does child hunger happen? Child hunger happens because children simply don't have the resources to get food. About twenty two percent of children in New Zealand live in poverty. Also about children twenty two percent of kids in New Zealand are hungry. Do you see the similarities between those numbers? Impoverished parents have a harder time providing for their families than those in higher paying careers. There are so many costs that parents have to cover such as rent, medical bills, clothes and power, there is often very little money left to pay for food. As the children are too young to work, they are not able to help their families or to buy their own food.

Why is child hunger a problem? Child hunger is a problem because it is not letting kids fulfill their full potential. Kids are still developing, and if they don't eat enough, their brain and their bodies won’t be able to completely develop. The feeling of hunger can also affect the child’s mood; they can feel stressed, anxious and lack concentration. These factors will then prevent students from concentrating on their learning at school and from having the energy to participate in sports.
This means that impoverished children are less likely to graduate from high school or university and then it can be difficult to find a well-paying job. In this case, the child may then go on to be an impoverished adult.

Are there any solutions? While there is no easy fix to this issue, there are some things that people can do to help. One solution that we could do to solve this problem is to volunteer at charities and organisations that support children. For example, you could volunteer at ‘Eat my Lunch’. Eat my lunch is an organisation that delivers free school lunches to children who would otherwise go hungry. Another way to help is that you could also start a food drive. You could organize a fundraiser of some sort, and instead of charging money to attend you would ask for canned food donations. With all the canned foods you get, you could donate all of them to a children's food shelter.
  Child hunger is a major issue that the government and New Zealand society must address. Children in New Zealand aren't fulfilling their full potential and showing the world what they can do.  Child Hunger is happening everywhere, impacting everyone, and it's happening because children simply don't have the resources they need. How does it feel when you are hungry? Try being hungry everyday as a seven year old.

Chocolate Challenge

Chocolate Challenge
We are learning to justify our ideas.

Name of Chocolate PICNIC!

Whats up guys today we are going to be talk about the best chocolate in the world Which is PICNIC!

Picnic is the healthiest
  1. Picnic is the healthiest chocolate in the world. Picnic is a type of chocolate bar consisting of milk chocolate and peanuts covering chewy nougat caramel biscuit and puffed rice. Picnic bars are lumpy in shape and it  has the least amount of sugar! It is a healthy bar and will save you from having diabetes.
It's the only Bar that has peanuts in it
  2) picnic is the only bar with healthy  peanuts. That's why Picnic is the best and less fat Picnic is the best because its a bar with rice krispies? and it has lots of different ingredients  

3) Picnic is a popular slogan, released in the early 2000s, was "Deliciously ugly". During the 1970s the Australian slogan for Picnic was "More like a banquet than a picnic". Picnic is manufactured by Cadbury UK

On the outside of a Moro bar it has hard chocolate but in the inside of the bar it is soft with caramel and it is made in New zealand and also Australia. We will stop people from buying moro by telling them they have a lot of fat and sugar.  

Crunchy is my less favorite because it is the hard and it has lots of chocolate and I think it's the less healthiest on this list
