Obesity in America
I would like to thank all of staff of Northwood Academy for allowing me to spend my internship there. I would also like to thank the senior staff of Imhotep Charter School for all their time and assistance.
This qualitative study has determined how the mis-education of nutrition and health relate's to obesity in the African American community? In addition, this study will seek to understand what are the factors that contribute to shifts from healthiness to obesity, and what part fast food plays in the problem?"At 35.7%, blacks continue to be the demographic group most likely to be obese"(Sharpe,2013). A sample group consisting of 38 responses from 3rd and 7th graders were used to determine the results and answer the problem statement.
Still Struggling in 2014
Sub-groups (Children & Women) did not change over the decade.
Obesity rates for older women (over 60), which rose from 31.5% to 38% Walton (2014).
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, African American’s have the highest rates of being overweight or obese compared to other groups in the U.S. About four out of five African American’s are overweight or obese. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seventy-three percent of adults and 43 percent of all children in the United States are overweight or obese.

Obesity in Children and Discrimination Theory
Shaping Behavior and Attitude in Childhood Obesity Theory
Masain (2005) theorized that there are three ways to cut down on childhood obesity. One cut down on television time, two encouraging physical activity daily, three encourage to eat healthier, And four Increase the drinking of water.
Childhood Obesity Problems; Comparison of Children of the 50s and 60s and Children Now theory
According to Hannah (2010) childhood obesity is caused from the lack of attention. The breakdown of the nuclear family in the 50's and 60's is a major contributor to the lack of exercise and poor eating habits.
Children’s eating attitudes and behaviour: A study of the modeling and control of parental influence theory
Theoretical Foundations Cont.
Brown (2012) parental influences a child's diet and have an impact on their choice of foods and also their attitudes and behavior.
It is not know if and to what extent that the lack of nutrition and physical activity causes obesity?
The purpose of this qualitative study is to understand the connection between nutrition and obesity. For students at Northwood Academy. At this stage in the research the connection between a lack of knowledge of good nutrition will be generally be defined as a main reason for obesity. Also a big concern for health among the african american community.
Data Collection Procedure
Data was collected using a qualitative method. By surveying two different age groups, the researcher was able to compare the two to see what group is more aware of the healthier choice.
To provide an answer to my question a qualitative survey was used to determine if children have a knowledge of good nutrition?

R1 How the lack of good nutrition relate to obesity?
R1 The causes of obesity in the urban community?
A qualitative analysis has been used to examine how the mis-education of nutrition and how it relates to obesity. Comparative surveys, observations has been used to compare the knowledge of nutrition. Also how the amount of physical activity has its part to play in obesity.
According to the Diop Two Cradle theory us as a people were never meant to be obese. Around the times of our ancestors all the food we consumed was fresh , they could walk outside and eat as much fruit as needed. The difference between now and then is all we eat is processed and bleached foods. Instead of having a healthy So the connection between now and then is without all this processed food we as african americans we would not be this unhealthy.
Cdc (2013 ) Overweight and Obesity in 2013
A healthier life is a better life and it all starts with what we eat. If we as a people choose to change our eating habits , and endure in physical activity it would be hard but worth it. Think of all the possibilities that it brings, a longer life and also less health problems.

Information was returned back for analysis in a sealed envelope.
Approval for student surveys were requested by researcher and granted approval from host teacher.
The qualitative study method was to used in the surveys .
The survey questions were not biased
Two sample groups were used to ensure that research was reliable
Questions were grade appropriate
