Research Proposal Thompson Jordan

Topic: Child Obesity and Concerned Parents. A big topic here is because many children are obese. There are ways to fix and overcome these struggles. Parents need to listen up and get some advice for this. Who do we blame here?

Research question: Asking how parents can change their kids eating habits. Giving suggestions to parents on what to feed kids. Certain problems that are caused by parents and children in America.

Working thesis statement: Child obesity is a wide spread epidemic. We need to stop feeding our children fattening foods and begin by giving them a healthy start in life.

Research plan: Is to find accurate websites with information regarding children’s obesity problem. I have done a lot of research already and have some very good sites to go off of. I even have some graphs, and maps that show obesity’s rise in America. Weight Loss: Health Risks Associated With Obesity, WebMD is one of my sites and my other one as a example will be Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Childhood Overweight and Obesit.
