Various points which can be included while composing this speech are:

  • Hectic pace of life is making it difficult for people to maintain a healthy diet;

  • A lot of working parents don't want to struggle with the issues so they give up, letting kids make their own choices;

  • Most kids are attracted to the advertising and packaging of food, including highly sugared cereals.

  • Developing children's attitude toward food should be similar to teaching them how to handle money – by giving them growing responsibility along with sensible access.

  • Parents should carefully read food labels to check nutrients and ingredients.

  • Teenagers like to experiment with everything, including risky food behaviour. They might gravitate toward highly processed foods, but once they become older and more independent they are likely to return to the healthy habits they had growing up.

  • "If you see a real eating problem and there is anger and conflict," advise psychiatrists, "seek professional intervention." Helpful support of family, friends and healthcare professionals is the best method for addressing eating disorders.

  • Various side effects of eating disorders are distress, fear of becoming overweight, feelings of helplessness and low self-esteem.

  • To cope with these issues, children and teens may adopt harmful eating habits. In fact, eating disorders often go hand-in-hand with other psychiatric problems such as the anxiety disorders, depression and substance abuse.

  • Eating disorders in children and teens cause serious changes in eating habits that can lead to major, even life threatening health problems. Three of such health problems are anorexia, Bulimia and Binge-eating.
