Isabelle Swanson started this petition to Wexford County Board of Education and

Mesick Public Schools amongst many others is forcing students to count calories, their fat intake, etc. for a weekly grade. As someone who has struggled with an ED and is around many people that have and still do, I think this is triggering to the youths at our school and at other schools too. I am all for encouraging good eating behavior and a healthy relationship with food, but it’s way too personal to force students to log their intake for a grade. There needs to be a different and better way to encourage healthy eating rather than essentially promoting eating disorders, because even if they aren’t intentionally doing that, it’s what is going to happen. There are way better options, such as encouraging eating more fruits and veggies, less fatty foods, and focusing on the foods themselves, NOT the kids consuming them. Thank you for your time :)
