Can you give me a idea of how to write a good Conclusion about childhood obesity? I'm having hard time. I talk about how schools need to give healthy food and get rid of fat food. I also talked about how children eat way to much food and don't exercise. I talk about about how obesity can be genetic from parents. I also talked about how to treat childhood obesity by going on a diet, and if parents lose weight, then the child will see that the mother is more active. And I talk about how to give the child healthy food and that children must play outside more and be more active.

The objective of a Conclusion is to briefly and concisely revisit, or restate, the important points of your analysis. In addition, a Conclusion may briefly comment on weaknesses in other resercher's analysis or conclusions about the problem. Finally, a Conclusion may suggest further research or action that you think will be useful. 

Basically, you talk about factors besides genetics that effect the problem of overweight children: poor food choices; overeating; inactivity; poor adult examples; availability of limited, popularized food choices instead of healthy food choices; indoor sedentary life.

A statement similar to my summation here would be a brief way to restate the important points of your analysis. You might criticize research by schools or others that give approval to "variety" in school menus as a way to popularize and limit healthy choices. You might criticize the lure of electronic entertainment that maximizes an indoor life and inactivity. You might suggest more research on the connection between parents' examples and overweight children and between entertainment and overweight children.

This is a suggestion that you can draw from as you write in your own words and ideas the points of your Conclusion. You now have a framework for a Conclusion and now see a small sample to help you find your way to a good Conclusion.
