More children in China are putting on weight. In 2018, 16 percent of Chinese children were overweight, according to the National Health Commission (NHC).
Being too fat is bad for children’s health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), overweight children are more likely to develop diseases like diabetes (糖尿病) at a younger age. This can lead to a higher chance of earlier death.
On Oct 23rd, the NHC, together with five other national departments, worked out a plan. The plan aims to reduce the growth of fatness among children aged 0—18 years by 70 percent from 2020 to 2030, Xinhua reported.
Kids are putting on weight because of changes in their diet and lifestyle, according to experts (专家). Too much schoolwork and greater use of electronic devices (电子产品) could also be a cause.
According to the plan, teachers should not allow their classes to run too late or too early. They should make sure that students have breaks and enough physical (躯体上的) activity. School students should have at least three hours of active physical activity each week.
Parents should reduce their children’s use of electronic devices and stop their children from eating foods that are high in sugar, fat and salt.

It’s not possible to stay together with loved ones all the time. Sometimes family members have to be far away from each other. During that time, they might face something terrible. Although we know what they are suffering, being far away makes it harder to help and comfort loved ones. There is no use worrying a lot about them. Instead, keeping a positive attitude of support is more helpful than getting into worrying about the person. I think it is what I can do to help my loved ones.
My daughter has been working full-time during summer about 10 hours a day. She has to study hard for a big entrance exam. At first, like most people, I wanted to try to solve the problems and try to explain the situation. Was there a better way of time management? Was there a better way of studying for this test? However, that was not always helpful. Sometimes, it even gave more pressure to her. Sometimes it might sound like there was something wrong to improve. However, it was just tiring at the end of the day. What would be the kind thing to do in this situation? It was hard to read someone’s mind. I decided to just chat with her online and to send a hug emoji (表情符号) this time. It seemed more suitable than talking about solutions. Giving space can also be an act of help, comfort and kindness.
It is fun and meaningful experiment to actively think about kind things to do rather than let it happen naturally. I’ve realized it and I’m grateful for this chance to share online. Give it a try too and you’ll enjoy sweetness.
