The given chart depicts how many British people ate the required amount of fruit and vegetables in 2002, 2006 and 2010. The data is represented in percents and is categorized into 3 groups - Men, Women and Children.
Overall, in each given year females were ones with the highest rate of eating according to the recommendations, while kids were the poorest eating group.
In 2002 1 in 4 women consumed the correct amount of fruit and vegetables, whereas it was only 1 in 10 for children. At the same time, this figure was 22% for men. In the next 8 years, all groups followed the same trend, with their numbers peaking in 2006 and then slightly declining in 2010 to a level between the numbers from 2002 and 2006. Both females and kids had seen a 7% point jump between 2002 and 2006, while males only a 4% difference. Moving to 2010, 26% of women ate the required amount of fruit and vegetables, being slightly above men of which 24% followed the recommendations and significantly higher when compared to children out of which only 16% ate correctly.

Family is the only thing people are born with. Over the years, the structure of the family has changed dramatically multiple times, with the most recent changes applying to all of its members. All of the parent's kids can now pursue further education in any field they want and no longer are they expected to take care of their parents when they retire. I believe those changes are solely positive and this essay will try to support my opinion.
First of all, by enabling equal access to education to all sexes, females are no longer expected to act as housewives. More and more men are adapting themselves and are performing the duties that in the past women were responsible for. For example, my mom and my dad have a business together, yet my mother is the one doing the work at the workplace, while my father takes care of the house and cooks dinner for all of us. This is a wonderful thing because families are no longer restricted by social prejudice, which makes them function much more flexible.
Nowadays, due to the broad access to healthcare, the introduction of care homes and the pension system, elderly people are no longer being taken care of by their offspring. This benefits both of the groups. Parents no longer feel dependent on their children when they hit retirement, whereas their children can go out into the world because they are not attached to their's family location. More and more young people decide to leave their hometown and study in a different city or country, with me being one of them.
In conclusion, I think that the recent changes to the family structures are beneficial for all their members. Parents, as well as their children, are no longer restricted by social prejudice and with age, both of those groups have more option of how to go on further with their lives.
