How the Aid Package Would Be Used
The Right to Health

The health-care provision states parties should ensure that all children have access to the highest attainable standard of health care and nutrition during their early years, in order to reduce infant mortality and enable children to enjoy a healthy start in life (art. 24). In particular: (a) States parties have a responsibility to ensure access to clean drinking water, adequate sanitation, appropriate immunization, good nutrition and medical services, which are essential for young children’s health, as is a stress-free environment. Malnutrition and disease have long-term impacts on children’s physical health and development. They affect children’s mental state, inhibiting learning and social participation and reducing prospects for realizing their potential.
The same applies to obesity and unhealthy lifestyles.

Regional Health Issue
Childhood Obesity
The map shows the prevalence of overweight children aged 7-11 years in different EU countries. (drawn from IOTF data: www.iotf.org)
Expected Outcome
Statistics
Finland: 1 in 5 children are overweight
Georgia: 19.9% overweight, 6.8% obese
Romania: 14.7% obese
Luxembourg: 55.1% overweight, 17.7% obese
Turkey: 40% of 6-10 years old are obese
Bulgaria: 23.7% are obese
Italy: 36% of children age 9 are overweight.
References
The implications of overweight and obesity in Europe are stark.

The prevalence of obesity has more than tripled in many European countries since the 1980s.

ONLY 7% of national health budgets across the EU are spent on diseases linked to obesity each year.

The high level of overweight and obesity in children and young people is an area of particular concern.

Around 1 in 3 children in the EU aged 6-9 years old were overweight or obese in2010.

Estimates of the number of overweight infants and children in the WHO European Region rose steadily from 1990 to 2008.
Youth who are overweight or obese have substantially higher odds of remaining overweight or obese into adulthood.

Childhood obesity is strongly associated with risk factors for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, orthopedic problems, mental disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, some cancers, underachievement in school, social discrimination, and lower self-esteem.
Root Cause Analysis


Obesity is caused by an imbalance between energy input and expenditure
There are numerous factors that are thought to contribute to this trend .

Genetics factor
s
: Obese children are likely to have obese parents .
Lack of Exercise
: Reduction of physical exercise in the absence of dietary modification contributes to weight gain.
Compulsory sport is on the decline

Dietary habits:
There is a growing cohort of children who develop bad eating habits for example a taste for junk food that is high in fat and carbohydrates.





Provide reduced cost healthy lunches
Build playgrounds at schools
Maintain a gym/health education class
Recruit volunteers yearly for routine physicals of children to help monitor their health & prevent/treat early any diseases discovered
Raise awareness through positive promotion of a healthy lifestyle
Improved academic performance, better psychological well-being

Enriched interpersonal relationships through the reduction of bullying

Transference of healthy lifestyles to subsequent generations, breaking the cyclical nature of obesity


Quality of Life
Childhood is an important period for forming healthy behaviours. Studies show that locally focused interventions, targeting children up to 18 years of age can be effective in changing behaviours. Schools provide an opportunity to ensure that children understand the importance of good nutrition and physical activity, and that kids can benefit from both.
The aid package would be used throughout the schools in Europe to:
Conclusion
The children of Europe need your help! With this aid package we can help provide a healthier lifestyle for our children which will help them lead healthier lives as adults by reducing the physical, psychological, and emotional problems that children who are overweight/ obese experience.

Sustainability
Allocation
Each country will receive an alloted amount of money to put towards these educational advancements to help fight childhood obesity. The money will go to the educational supervisors of each country. For example, in both Finland and Georgia the money would go to the Ministry of Education and Science and in Turkey to the Ministry of National Education for further distribution to the schools. A 1 year follow up report will be provided by each country explaining their distribution, implementation, and progress with regards to the aide. Failure to adhere to guidelines will result in termination of the financial aide.
Socio-economic situation
The prevalence of childhood obesity is linked to the respective country's income inequality or relative poverty.
Child obesity factsheets suggest an almost linear relationship between obesity prevalence and deprivation. 
Children in the most deprived areas have almost double the obesity prevalence than those in the least deprived areas.
Parent's Occupation.
Knowing the quality and cost of food that is served in the schools of Europe, there is no doubt that obesity can't be questioned
Children are going to have a healthy life style through the benefit of this program
The need for physical activity is of grand importance in Europe due to the sedentary lifestyle
Consuming nutritious foods at a reduced cost, helps children and teens grow, develop, do well academically and feel good about themselves

European Culture

Our plan is to provide reduced price healthy lunches to reach the goal of lowering obesity.

The new school meal standards will help make sure kids have access to more fruits and vegetables, more whole grains and low-fat dairy products.
It will also ensure they limit the about of fat and sugars the children consume within their diets.

.
Conclusion

Childhood obesity in Europe has tripled since the 1980's
O 7% of the national budget is spent towards deseases linked to obesity each year
1 out of 3 children age 6 to 9 are overweight
60% of overweight children are expected to be overweight during early adulthood.
Obesity leads to non communicable diseases, under achievement in school, social discrimination, and low self-esteem.
Proposed Plan Recap
Use of the aid package will target children of 0-18 years of age, specifically in the schools.
The plan will provide reduced cost lunches in the schools, money to build/improve playgrounds at the schools, maintain gym/nutrition education, and free yearly physicals.
Alloted amount of money will be given to the ministry of education for distribution
1 year follow up report: description, implementation, and progress.
Sustainability: Proceeds from the increased snack prices within the schools
Independent donors
In the European Culture it is standard tradition to eat everything that is served to them.
It is a sign of resepct to the host.
Eating more / asking for more is always promoted.
Drinking alcohol is a common norm for Europeans and it is accepted socially for children as young as 7 years old to have an alcoholic beverage with a meal.
The program focuses on PRIMARY PREVENTION by performing yearly routine physicals with the help of volunteer doctors/nurses.
Increased price on snacks in the schools
