WOULD STUDENTS EAT HEALTHIER IF THEY HAD DISCOUNTS AT STORES?
Should Grocery Stores Consider Student Discounts, Helping Students To Eat Healthier.
“Online Jobs for Students are all about supporting students health and future.”
GRIFFIN AYERS, a Daily Evergreen columnist May 16, 2019, has this delicious article and I have to support this all the way!
We are on the same team when it comes to looking out for students and getting the communities to focus on helping students along the way through their journey in college.
Why Are Students Eating Unhealthy Foods?
Onlinejobsforstudents.org wants to look out for students health as we know many of them are not eating healthy, mostly due to cost, and “Simple foods on the go” is what I call the quick bite of food.
Mostly these type of foods remains full of preservatives, sugar, fat, carbs. Eating right while you are young keeps your body healthier and less prone to health issues later on.
Unhealthy Eating Caused Diabetes
It is to easy while in college to grab easy food on the go which is usually full of preservatives, and unhealthy. Would students eat healthier if they had store discounts?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The report finds that as of 2015, 30.3 million Americans – 9.4 percent of the U.S.population –have diabetes.
Supply and Demand
I do know why organic is more costly to buy. It is supply and demand. There are fewer people eating healthier so the cost will be higher. If everyone goes organic, the cost will go down. Organic would be a healthier way to feed our families.
I truly believe prices could go down if our economy was not so much in debt. Stores, Merchants, Wholesale and Retail stores have to charge a higher price as inflation grows and the national debt increases.
Go Green, Make A Difference
As Americans can do something about before it leads us into a recession because this economy cannot live on credit alone as our Nations Revolving Debt is 57%.
Think about it for a minute. The farmer buys the seed to plant the corn and pay the water bill. The farmer using the tractor and truck carrying the goods both use a credit card to pay for the gas. The retail store selling the goods pays for them with credit, and lastly, the consumers pay for their food with credit cards.
Now since the US has 57% revolving credit, that means more than half of the US is not paying off their credit cards monthly. WE NEED CASH FLOWING INTO OUR ECONOMY, NOT JUST CREDIT. How long do you think we can hold up?
So by giving discounts to students at stores, maybe they would be willing to use cash, more so than credit as I hope students learn to invest. You can use the cash, pay off your student loans, and be like other investors, putting the green into the economy and hopefully we can stop a near future recession from happening.
Debts Not Services? Scary
Think about what Debts not serviced could mean. This in itself can create a storm with huge snowball effects. Analysist are predicting a recession next year some are saying worse due to the trends of the economy.
According to NewStatesmenAmerica, Grace Blakeley wrote in the economic section, “Private debt, meanwhile, has resurged in many countries – notably in China, Australia, Canada and some of the Nordic states – and many emerging markets are now in debt distress (meaning they have defaulted or cannot service their debts),” (Grace Blakeley).
