Children are hungry for knowledge and we need to feed them with the right kind of information. This is why the schools have a set curriculum. Through this they ensure that the students are exposed to the kind of information they can comprehend. But how do children get the motivation to have aspirations or dreams for future?
Here’s where the term ‘peer pressure’ comes to play. Children have a tendency to imitate what others are doing around them. So when they see their classmates doing well in studies, they feel motivated to pursue the same. However, this healthy and competitive environment can be marred by the existence of one factor – hidden hunger. This makes it important to stop hidden hunger now.
When we don’t feed the children with nutritious food, we leave them hungry partially. This is why we need to stop hidden hunger now as it directly relates to the growth of the children. When we feed the children with wholesome meals, they don’t’ feel hungry and are motivated to compete. But with hidden hunger, children don’t feel healthy and strong and can’t focus on their studies.
A nation-wide campaign Feed The Future Now is an endeavour to stop hunger now by feeding the hungry children. The campaign targets hidden hunger by taking nutritious meals to schools. When children get these wholesome meals, they feel motivated to dream big, which is otherwise not possible if the child suffers from hidden hunger. They compare their ambitions with those of their peers and develop competence.
Several times, two close friends start off chasing a common dream as they inspire each other. The top ranking students in class create a sense of standard within a classroom. Nothing motivates children than seeing their friends succeed. This makes it important to feed the hungry children.
As the campaign observes Hunger Action month, let’s pledge to encourage our children to have goals. Let’s help in creating an environment of healthy competition where ambitious children study together and motivate each other.
