  • Yes, junk foods should be banned.

    Removing unhealthy high-calorie snacks and drinks from school is an important step toward tackling the nations childhood obesity epidemic. Poor eating habits developed at an early age lead to a lifetime of real health consequences. Although kids enjoy eating delicious treats, they don't know what harm it can do to them. Banning junk foods, may lead them to realize what good nutritious foods do for theirs lives.

  • Junk food should be banned in schools across Australia and other countries.

    It causes a lack of focus during lessons which means the thousands of dollars spent on your child's education is going to waste. If students are eating a whole load of fatty foods during school the chances of them having problem with their weight and their appearance. Do you really want the next generation of kids to be hiking the rates of depression? Think of the problems that are caused! Do you still think junk food at school is a good idea?!

  • Opinions on what is considered junk vary from family to family.

    Opinions on what is considered junk vary from family to family. Some families think that fruits are a healthy food, but other view them as simply a source of unnecessary carbohydrates that can spike blood sugar. Consider what McDonald's is doing to offer a “healthy alternative” to french fries in happy meals: offering a sliced apple with a caramel dipping sauce. This is packed with sugar designed to produce a craving in the children for McDonald's food, yet enough people would recognize this as healthy. What we really need to do is provide a range of alternatives for students to choose from to further empower the family to make choices.

  • Yes, I think junk food should be banned from schools.

    Getting an education is required, from kindergarten until the 12th grade or until you are older enough to quit school. With that being said, schools should take the accountability to make sure that children are receiving a good healthy and nutritious meal. Especially during the times that they have the students in their care. The school may ask for you health history or background, but do they really consider that for each student. I think that because our bodies can get addicted to junk food. The school, homes, and others should provide students with healthy food.

  • Junk food should be banned from schools.

    With junk food you may not see the effects at a young age, but what I notice is that our bodies become use to getting junk food until we end up wanting it when we get older and it's not good for us. It can cause diabetics, high blood pressure, high cholesterol , etc. I think that the schools should give the children healthy nutritious meals, because they don't know every students family history or backgrounds.

  • In Public Schools

    Why should my tax dollars go towards substandard food for children instead of good food? I'm not opposed to allowing students to bring their own including junk food but the cafeteria and vending machines should not be serving it. And I'm for the government leaving people alone and making their own lifestyle choices, it's just that in this case it's about public facilities and public funds.

  • Junk food = junk minds

    Junk food should be banned at schools because junk food does not provide students with proper nutrients that are found in healthful foods such as fruits and vegetables. Junk food merely gives students a sugar high, and then accompanied by a 'low'. Healthy food keeps you fuller for longer meaning students are more likely to focus in class.

  • Junk food affects the ability to learn.

    The chemicals in junk food react with the brain and affects a child's ability to concentrate, pay attention, remember and learn. It can also have a dramatic affect on children's behavior causing problems of aggressiveness, defiance, hyperactivity and impulsivity.

    Junk food can also flare up existing medical conditions such as asthma, epilepsy, eczema and hay fever.

    Not only this, our current generation of children have very poor diets and have the most weight problems in history.

  • Yes it should

    I think that it has been shown through quite a few studies and what have you that American children are becoming overweight and obese at a very alarming rate. We need to do everything in our power to stem the tide of fat kids that is washing over our lands.

  • Nanny State Alert!

    Imagine... a world where the country controls what you eat, where you eat it, how much you eat, and when you can eat it. If a government has that much power, it has too much power. It can easily squirm its way over to every other part of our lives.

  • No junk food should not be banned.

    Opinions on what is considered junk vary from family to family. Some families think that fruits are a healthy food, but other view them as simply a source of unnecessary carbohydrates that can spike blood sugar. Consider what McDonald's is doing to offer a “healthy alternative” to french fries in happy meals: offering a sliced apple with a caramel dipping sauce.

What we really need to do is provide a range of alternatives for students to choose from to further empower the family to make choices.

  • Everyone wants freedom!

    Why should junk food be banned?
    No one likes to be told what to eat, when to eat, what they must/mustn't eat.
    We like to choose what we eat, and we like our freedom, our independence.
    Also, if it was banned, children wouldn't be able to learn hat junk food is bad. Once they get out of school, they find that junk food is not banned outside school, and hey start eating it.
    And what's the point of banning it in schools if you can always get it at home?

    Freedom is a right. Everybody deserves it. Even children. That's why we should be allowed to choose what we eat, and why junk food should be allowed.

  • Junk food should not be banned!

    Who wants to be controlled at all times and given no freedom? No one wants to be old when they can eat and what they can eat and that they must eat nothing other than what they are told to eat. Everyone wants to be free, and they should. It's a right that people deserve - freedom.

  • NO. Eating junk food is a choice

    >Junk foods should not be banned in the market and also in schools!!! All they're considering is that junk foods can harm our health, not thinking that it is the consumer who abuses the consumption of this food. If they get sick don't blame junk foods but blame the ones who eats too much of it....

  • Perssuite of happiness

    I think junk food should not be banned because we are saving money and time. God wants us to enjoy life and and sent us on a mission for the pursuit of happiness and at the same time still believing in him. Follow his rules, have fun with life, and don't sin and you have an assured pass to heaven.

  • On junk food should not be banned because people are save the time

    The people work on the job ,male and female cooking at home then they makingthe food costly so they go to market then bring the junk food. When mostly people are like the junk food .New ganeration not eating the simple food ,children like the junk food in my cases

  • No they should not.

    See, if they ban junk food in schools then the kids would be mad and cry. If they do that then the schools will then here complaints of mothers and fathers saying, "Oh my child just got out of school and was crying like a big dumb baby." If the schools here more and more complaints then all the schools would be forced to close down and that means bad education for kids and college people. That is why I think schools should not ban junk food and never think about it ever again or else the next time they will do it. :)

  • Junk food should not be banned

    People should be able to decide themselves, or under their parents influence, what they want to eat. It is someones own desision if they eat to much junk food and get fat. Also, people can burn off the calories in the junk food they have eaten by exercising, which is good for you in other ways too.

  • No way cant happen!

    Junk foods should not be banned from schools grounds. Because if we cant eat at schools we will have other ways such as home and stores. So there isn't any point of that because its only going to cause lots of unnecessary commotion. Plus every person is ribbons to what they eat.
