I think sugar filled foods such as candy, Snapple, cookies, soft pretzels, and unhealthy chips should not be served in school.

Con said that sugar foods such as candy, and Snapple should be banned in school. Kids can and should be trusted for their decisions they make in school. Anything that they do will effect the choices they will make the next time they think about it again. On http://www.npr.org..., they believe that kids are responsible enough to make the right choices. If they don't they will be able to learn from their past mistakes.

Pro said that "Kids can and should be trusted for their decisions they make in school." This debate is not about being able to make decisions. Back to the topic. America is the number 1 state for the most obese. Sixty million adults (20 percent of the population) are OBESE because of their unhealthy eating habits. Nearly 300,000 people die each year from complications associated with being OBESE or overweight. School is where children spend most of their time, and it is where we lay the foundation for healthy habits. That's why New Jersey is the first state to adopt a comprehensive school nutrition policy that bans candy, soda, and other junk food, states http://www.scholastic.com....

Pro forfeited the last round, so let's continue. America being known for the most obese state and pro is supporting that with his opinion. Back to the topic, New Jersey is the first state to become healthy by enforcing healthy laws and actions. If New York doesn't take action soon 99 % of the population will soon become obese or overweight. These fattening foods served in our public schools have so many calories, grams of sugar, and cholesterol. An average cookie has 78 calories, and 30 grams of sugar. An average bag of chips such as lay's potato chips has a large amount of grease. Can you imagine putting all that junk into your body?

3 points to Pro (arguments), 1 point to Con (conduct). Reasons for voting decision: I support pro but he did forfeit so i am splitting the vote

[*Reason for removal*] Voted for Pro based on personal bias. Pro did barely anything in this debate other than forfeit.
