Tip o’ the Morning to Ya – Fast Food is a Poverty Habit


Rich Habits Word of the Day

Scourge – Plague. Obesity has become the scourge of the poor in America.

Rich Habits Fact of the Day

Children from poor families have had some of the nation’s highest rates of obesity. One in eight preschoolers in the United States is obese. Among low-income children, it is one in seven. The rate is much higher for blacks (one in five) and for Hispanics (one in six).

Rich Habits Lesson of the Day

97% of poor people in a five-year study by the Rich Habits Institute ate more than 300 junk food calories a day. 70% of wealthy people in this same study ate less than 300 junk food calories a day. Wealthy people are healthy people. Being healthy results in fewer sick days, more productivity and a longer work life. This translates into more income and lower health care costs.
