Subject: Poor Health Conditions of Children
Through the esteemed column of your daily newspaper, I would like to draw the attention of the mothers of today towards the daily diet of their children as modern lifestyle of the people have changed the eating habits, behaviour and culture.
It is indeed unfortunate that most of the children are exposed to a life of comfort and utmost convenience and luxuries are made available to them almost on a platter. Still, these children are not leading a healthy lifestyle. Hence, most of them suffer from the problems of skin, teeth, eyesight etc.
If we probe the reason, children just rush towards fast-food and uncovered unhygienic food. They don’t want to learn about the advantages of cleanliness. We ourselves are responsible for making our surroundings and environment polluted. We are throwing the garbage outside the houses, inviting diseases. Besides, children of today prefer watching T.V., playing video games, surfing on internet rather than playing outdoor games. Also, they study in improper light lying in bed.
Through this newspaper I would like to request the mothers to be very careful about the health and hygiene of their children.
They should guide them to bathe daily with good soap in order to avoid skin problem. They should also give them a balanced diet with fruits, vegetables and milk. They should watch T.V. less and should do vigorous exercise in fresh air for at least one hour.
