Nowadays there is a lot of junk food and also machines with junk food at schools.
Junk food is defined as "a popular term for any food which is low essential nutrients and high in everything else - in particular calories and sodium." Junk food is often highly salted, high in refined carbohydrates and high in saturated. To this list we can apply crisps, chips, candy, drinks, chocolate, cakes.
All these things bring our children to wrong nutrition, so to illnesses also.
today people don't have so much time to spent it for eating. This also applies to children in schools where they don't have time because of short breaks. it is more easily to have a snack and be full than wait for a dinner in the canteen. it can not bring so much harm if it is eaten in certain amounts. By eating juk food you get food faster and cheaper, it is great advantage
In the US scientists made an observe and found that every year amount of children that suffer from obesity is rising up because of wrong nutrition, mostly their junk food is from their schools. In the period between 1976-1980 and 1999-2002 the number of overweight children doubled. This situation can refer to our society in several years. That means that with our small breaks, no matter in what amounts you eat it, you also spoil you organism and lead it to illnesses. It's better to take some fruits and vegetables with you and eat it, and then after coming home, eat ordinary meal.
from my personal experience, because of high school stress on the brain, the body requires replenishment from the outside and also because of lack of time, you buy food or fast food and snacks. You eat them on the way, do not waste time by left standing in the queues and the process of eating at the table with plates, especially when you are in a hurry. and in addition, children don't bring vegetables to school voluntarily and they won't eat them if they don't want. as a general rule, this is the case.
But you have at least one big break, and you can spend it on eating a meal, even if you're late for classes then. The other reason is that it's proved that wrong nutrition also brings people to different psychological problems, such as different types of depression, bad mood, evident woman premenstrual syndrome. The person that that people who eat junk food feel the leakage of their power and tiredness. This happens because junk food is often low-cal or low carbohydrate, so your organism doesn't feel active, but feel tired. The main "audience" in schools are often children, growing organisms, so they need right nutrition.
That are major reasons why junk food should be banned at schools.
It should be said that not only junk food can cause illness. For example,as in our canteens in Kazakhstan there are unscrupulous people who use expired ingredients for cooking or not cook until the end her that often lead to contamination of children, and the risk of food poisoning from a lot more than to eat fast food, it does not unnecessarily requires much intelligence to be prepared. from my own experience, I was etched from eating in canteen in school 3-4 times per week . After that, my parents gave me money to buy bread rolls or chocolate bars, because I was afraid of hot food from there. So, I can conclude that junk food can be even useful than other food in schools.
Reasons for voting decision: Very well done. Con did have a disadvantage because it is harder to find arguments for Con than for Pro, but he/she did a good job and made some arguments that made me stop and think
