It is no surprise, some may think, “what is Buurps.com trying to convey by showcasing this video? The situation in Malaysia is totally different from America or Britain (those developed countries). What is the relevance?”

Well, just say no matter where we are, we care for our children and do not wish to see our own children to suffer. The issue highlighted by Jamie in regards to the eating habits of America and Britain is an alarm bell to check the current escalating food issue arise of our modern day era.

We do not have to wait for our homegrown situation to explode exponentially like those happening in the developed countries, in order to start looking around for explanations and solutions. This video put up by Buurps.com is with an intention to create awareness of the existence of such food issue among children around the world and how we as individuals can contribute our part to tackle this food issue starting from family units.

Let’s work together to teach our children about food.

We, adults need to live exemplary lives to our future generations.

They need to know what is “bad food” and “healthy food”. It is important for them to know how their food choices will affect their lives. They need to be exposed on how to prepare healthy food on their own, for survival sake.
