School should ban junk food
Debate Rounds (3)
What would you say about school meals in general? Schools offer a certain type of meal (e.g. spaghetti and meatballs). If you do not want to eat it for whatever reason, you have every right to pack your own lunch. No one is compelling you to eat spaghetti. Banning junk food means preventing students from bringing a burger and chips from home for lunch. Even if the kids eat junk food when they go home after school, they still have had one fewer unhealthy meal than they would otherwise. How is the school wasting money if they are only offering healthy options? And if students follow this rule of not bringing in junk food to school, food will not be wasted.
That is a inaccurate assumption. "Healthier food" does not equal "nasty food." An example of junk food would be fried chicken, and an alternative would be grilled chicken. Most kids will still eat the healthier option. In fact, they may prefer it over time. Healthy food and good-tasting food are not mutually exclusive.
My argument here also invalidates your argument that schools will be losing money, because kids WILL still eat school lunches. Even if students don't eat school lunches, schools will not lose money. They are reimbursed for offering healthy options.

Reasons for voting decision: I thought this was a really short debate, and it was kind of hard to judge, but I'll give it a shot. No sources were cited, so no one had more reliable sources, and I felt that con jut barely had a better argument. But it was only because he kind of looked at the whole picture. He recognized that kids will bring unhealthy foods to school, and continue eating them at home.
