Removing certain advertisements from public schools (unhealthy drinks and snacks)
Debate Rounds (3)
According to the CDC, the precentage of overweight students in US public schools has grown since 2003.
The proposal of eliminating unheathy drink and food advertisements in schools will expose students to make healthier decisions inside and outside of schools. According to this website, making junk foods available is associated with weight gain.
With this proposal, it will help many students lead a better and healthier lifestyle by encouraging them to by healthy foods.
You're arguing that these unhealthy food advertisements in schools bring money into schools, which they do. But healthy food advertisements can have the same affect of bringing money in to the schools.
We are not telling students to not balance healthy foods with unhealthy foods, but while they're in school we can make sure that they're making healthier food choices.
According to the University of Massachusetts Boston, "Healthy eating improves academic achievement and leads to students getting better grades and functioning at a higher level both inside and outside of school. Good nutrition supports alertness, cognition, memory, problem solving, speed and overall achievement.".
It has been proven that students do better in school, when they have a healthier diet. By replacing unhealthy foods and advertisements from schools, students will do better in school and be much healthier.
A high school in Wisconsin replaced unhealthy lunches with healthy ones and the results were amazing. Healthier foods can give you more energy than greasy, fatty foods. It also changed the overall behavior of the students at this high school.
The statistics show amazing results from replacing unhealthy foods and advertisements in schools, with healthy choices.
