The bar chart illustrates the proportions of UK people who showed daily commitment to the recommended amounts of consumed fruit and vegetable in three different years. It is measured in percentages.
Overall, it can be seen that women were the most committed group, remaining at a higher consumption rate throughout the period. At the beginning of the period, in 2002, females consumed the largest amount of fruit and vegetable among their counterparts, at 25 % followed by men and children, at 22% and 11% respectively.
Similarly, over the next four years, women also exceeded men and children reaching up to 32 %, while men consumed far less at 26 % and only 18% of children consuming fruit and vegetable.
Moving to 2010, 26 % of women ate the recommended amounts of fruit and vegetable, which was slightly higher than men's consumption by only 2 percent and significantly higher than children's consumption, which was represented by only 16 %.

Recently, the way in which a family is structured has experienced major changes, as well as the roles played by its members. In fact, the parents are no longer the most important subjects in the family and children are becoming increasingly independent. In my opinion, these changes are affecting the younger generations positively.
Despite some challenges, In recent years, younger generations have changed the traditional concepts that a child will always depend on his father in order to grow. Moreover, they tend to experience everything on their own without any assistance. For instance, in Japan, sessions are being delivered to the parents to teach them how to help their sons and daughters to become less dependent on them and to encourage them not be afraid to let them go on their own. Therefore, the idea of the family conventional structure is growing to be much less popular.
On the other hand, these changes are necessary to enable generations to develop better characters and mentalities. Furthermore, it is a good chance to provide them with multiple opportunities that would have been otherwise impossible if they had only followed their parents' rules. For example, studying abroad gets so much easier for adolescents when they adapt to the idea of independence during their childhood. Consequently, it sounds logical to believe that these major changes may significantly change too many lives for the better.
In conclusion, families and their roles are no longer structured in the same way as the situation changed few years ago. Indeed, boys and girls are getting rid of any forms of assistance that they need from their care-givers earlier than ever. From my perspective, this change is not only beneficial, but also necessary for individuals to grow more independently.
