Abstract

The intent of this written component is to document my thesis exhibition, Food Fight.;Our lifestyles (whether intentional or not) tend to support a 'convenience food culture' and the increased consumption of foods high in fat, salt and sugar. Some factors that prolong dependence on these convenience foods are: rising incomes, longer working hours, more working mothers, time-poor/cash-rich parents, parents that have to work two jobs, and the basic lack of understanding of what proper nutrition is. In the United States we have fleets of trucks that travel across the country to deliver chips, candy bars and soda to our schools and market places. Frozen dinners and fast food meals from the drive through may be a constant for many Americans. Food is no longer a nutritional need, but a novelty that is designed to appeal towards our time restrictions and pocket books, not our health.
