Firstly, it is noticeable that in Uk a large proportion of waste more than four-fifths is put into landfill sites. Moreover, this process has a significant impact on Sweden with 55%, whereas in Korea this technique seem not to be as significant as in other countries, with only 22%.

Nowadays there are several types of food and beverages with different brands and tastes. However there are those who argue that some types of food could bring some drawbacks among people, especially I hold firmly to the belief that obesity in children has become an issue of debate among doctors. This phenomenon is caused by many reasons, which could lead children's health to dramatic consequences.
It is widely believed that government allow fast food companies to sponsor every kind of sport, which are affecting in a significant way the mental and physical health of many children. For example, about the problem with unhealthy brands and food products, by having their brand alongside a young person's favourite sporting hero, on the chest of their national team, it does two things. First of all, it creates brand attachment, so if you are a young child you built the connection in your mind that basically fast food equals success. At the same time, it also gives a health halo to that brand. Consequently this could bring to children over dependency on fast food consumption and dramatic consequences to their health, such as hearth disease and diabetes.
Secondly, it is probably true to say that our modern world is filled with devices, which were unimaginable only a few years ago. In other words, innovative gadgets allow many people to order food online. For example, we live in a frenetic society, where people do not have time to complete their personal activities during a day. Moreover, parents with children tend to purchase food by online delivery applications, these services are becoming very popular in all over the world and convenient, which optimise people's time and facilitate their daily life activities. By contrast, most of the nutritional values of food ordered online, aren't acceptable at all, because many types of food are ultra-processed, which ruins the quality of the food. Consequently, this unawareness could cause detrimental effects on children's health.
To sum up, fast food companies need to sponsor healthy food in order to be a good example for children's health and government need to limit the usage of online applications, because this convenient approach could cause dependency on fast food consumption among old and young society.
