Junk food should not be banned in school
Debate Rounds (3)
I think junk food should be banned in school..well simply put...because it's harmful to the health of children
while eating junk food satisfies one's hunger but it is very harmful in the long run..it can lead to type 2 diabetes , it can cause digestive problems , it can lead to obesity , it can cause fatigue and weakness , can lead to depression and for even more reasons refer to this link .. http://www.thehealthsite.com...
Banning junk food in schools is a start towards the goal of a healthier lifestyle for children
Banning junk food is a good start in the right direction(I.e. Healthy lifestyle) .. And the benefits of banning junk food aren't only limited to reduction in obesity .. Junk food is very harmful ..and that's why it's called junk food and not healthy food
It Has low nutritional value..in the long run it takes more than what it gives back to your body
I've already mentioned the harms in the above argument
While on the other hand eating healthy food is beneficial to the health of an individual ..
I mean our body has food requirements ..and We have to meet them
Now while if the children eat junk food to meet their hunger requirements ..it results in degradation of their mental and physical health..which is not desirable
While if they eat healthy food their would be an upgradation of their physical and mental health..which is desirable
Food is an integral part of our lives..and we should start seeing it as one rather than just a medium to meet our health requirements..right food can be such an important part in growth of an individual..while the wrong food can be just as important part in slow degradation of an individual
Now to refute your argument
Just banning won't solve the problem of obesity..but junk food isn't only limited to obesity ..it results in degradation of an individual in so many other ways(see them in above argument and its link).
And pretty sure if children decide to snack on rat poison not understanding how harmful it is we can't allow that :)
Now i would have refuted your argument..but you did it yourself when you presented the idea that a good way to protect children's health is providing them with healthy food in schools in your r3 argument
But what I need you understand is junk food isn't only limited to obesity..it degrades you both mentally and physically while healthy food does the opposite..
what you basically argue is this..that it's children's right to have the choice of junk food at school..this argument is invalid ..well simply because there's no such right :)

Reasons for voting decision: Although Pro's argument was that obesity can be banned other ways than banning junk food. Con pointed out that banning junk food at school wouldn't stop children from eating at home, is a step towards a healthier lifestyle and that obesity isn't limited to just junk food, which trumps Pro's arguments. Pro made no attempt to refute Con's arguments so Con gets the argument points. Con used 2 different semi-reliable sources that supported his case of how banning junk food is a good thing whereas Pro used no sources. Thus, Con gets argument points.
