Children should not get sweets for school.Why? If children get to much sugar it can lead to diabetes and they won't be able to concentrate in class

The basic premise of this is flawed. "If children get too much sugar it can lead to diabetes and they won't be able to concentrate in class." Loss of attention is not a symptom of diabetes. And why specifically in school? There is nothing about a school environment specifically which you've put forward which would justify banning it there. Kids should have the right to eat whatever the want, as long as their parents approve. Who are you to get in there lives and tell what they can and can't eat where? Whether or not it should be banned in schools is up to the discretion of the owners of the schools, not the government. Your turn.

I think junk food are bad especially for the children. But sometimes you need that kind of stuff if you are in a hurry. There are lots of junk food in this world. Some of them are healthier too.

How do you define "junk"? I'm guessing you mean junk food, but that's a pretty broad category. What foods would you specifically ban? Would there be a threshold for fat and sugar levels? How about carbs? Would it just be banned from purchase on school property, or would students be banned from bringing it in as well? Does this include vending machines?

Reasons for voting decision: The instigator did not even define "junk food" which may seem obvious, however to some people anything other than slabs of meat is junk food (Yes, Scott Adkins was obese when he was admitted to the hospital the final time...). The case was absolutely refuted, and con decided to forfeit.
