Topic: Eating a healthy breakfast; why it’s important for college students.
Specific Purpose: I want my audience to understand that there is time to eat breakfast in the morning and why, how and what breakfast can do to help your health.
Attention getter: You wake up and oh man, what’s that feeling? It feels like your insides are caving in and wait, wait – you’re hungry. Starving actually. Oh no, you have three minutes to get to class so it’s either this: you check your myspace really quick or you grab an apple and an orange juice. Not many people grab that apple and eating breakfast can be one of the most important things you’ll do in the morning.
Relevance: As college students on the go every morning, we fail to realize that we’re not getting nutrition to fuel our bodies for the rest of the day. We blame it on not enough time or the latest diet trend – either way, a busy college student seems to hardly have time to eat breakfast.
Credibility: My mother is a nurse and a strong advocate on breakfast in the mornings so as a child; she instilled in me the knowledge that a healthy morning meal brings.
Propositional Statement: Not having healthy eating habits remains a problem not only to college students but children and adult everywhere. Since awareness of the benefits and necessities a breakfast can provide, I propose there should be more media marketing for real life students and a lesson in health class devoted to a good start.
