This is the VOA special English Health Report.

Research says American children now eat an average three snacks a day between meals. A study found that those snacks add up to almost one third of all the daily calories eaten by children. And those extra calories could help explain the rise of overweight children in the United States.

The study was done at the University of North Carolina at *. The researchers study the diets of thirty-one thousand children ages two to thirteen over thirty-year period. They found that snacking has increased since the 1970s.

And what kind of snacks have increased most? Saulty high fat foods like chips. The study also found the greater snacking on cake, cookies and other treats that test generations might of saved after dinner.

The study is in the General Health Affairs. Nutrition Professor Barry * was the lead investigator. He says “Parents should limit snacks to one a day for children age 6 or older. He also advised parents and care * to provide healthy snacks like fruits and vegetables. Professor * says “American schools also need to improve their nutrition, for example, schools may have * machines that offer what many people would consider junk food. There has been a push for schools to offer more healthful snacks and lunch choices and fewer sugaring drinks.

Earlier this month, Coca-cola said it would stop selling sugaring drinks in American schools unless parents request them. It competitors as Pepsi just announced that they will stop sales of sugared drinks to schools worldwide.

America’s top public health officer wants to see more changes like this. Surgeon general * * recently spoke to law-makers about making healthy foods more available.

This growing concerns that we as nation need to create our communities and our environments with healthy choices and easy choices and affordable choices.

Agriculture secretary Tom * said “Who has talked about his own childhood struggles with weight agrees about the need.

We need to do a much better job making sure what’s in * machines is very consisted. We think the time is come for standards.
First Lady Michelle Obama is leading a campaign to fight childhood *. Public health officials reported in January that 17 percent of American children are severely overweight.
