kids should be allowed to eat what they want


I'm excited to debate this, and good luck to my opponent!
Debate Round No. 1


If kids have the right to eat what they want they will feel independent which gives them a self esteem boost


Ice cream and sugary foods should not be allowed in school cafeterias.

1) Students are healthier when they eat healthier food. If schools provide healthier food, that's incentive to eat it. Childhood obesity leads to adult obesity, and childhood healthy habits lead to adult healthy habits. Thus, schools should foster healthy eating among students.

2) The purpose of a school is to educate. Students can't learn if they are not eating nutritious food. This also turns my opponent's point: children will not be able to learn or grow autonomously if they are eating unhealthy food.

3) Social inequality is compounded by food. If students are unable to get healthy food at home, they must get it at school. Otherwise, unhealthy food will lead to malnutrition and myriad other health concerns, and eventual inability to get a job paying the money to get more healthier food.

Assuming eating unhealthy food allows self-esteem is ridiculous. All it promotes are health issues.

Please vote con!
