  • 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.

  • Eat organic foods

    If you like junk food and you are trying to be healthy.Stop eating junk food and eat organic food.Why it can have a better taste or the same taste and it will be very healthy for you and you get a good taste.For example eat organic chips instead of bad chips with organic sause.

  • Bad diseases and other problems

    I say that junk food should be banned in schools because these food are bad for health. It can lead to serious diseases like cancer, High Blood pressure and many other obesity diseases. Not only diseases, there are many other problems like concentrating because your body might not get enough oxygen needed. It is true that we cannot control what children eat from out side, but once they see how great they feel after eating a healthy meal they will want to eat better at any other place too. A journal of American public Health Association study concluded that children who ate healthy had obtained more marks than the once who did not ate healthy food in a test.

  • Junk food should be banned!

    Junk food will lead you to being obese , which can kill you. Also, junk food can lead kids, everyone to life time health consequences. Additionally, junk food givesckids to much sugar that makes them hiper in class. Do you want to be obese, and have problems while than keep eatin junk food. And you'll see whats coming up. If your in my side well thank you, and good luk for the people who disagrees with me.

  • Yes it should

    I think it should be banned because about a third of American children are overweight or obese. Clearly, if about one third of American children are obese then states should ban junk foods from schools. Also, school is where children spend most of their time, and it is where we lay the foundation for healthy habits. For example If you go to school in New Jersey, your vending machines and school stores, along with the a la crate lines in your cafeterias, will no longer be able to sell snacks that are high in fat and loaded with sugar. Items that list sugar as the first ingredient will be eliminated and snacks will contain no more than eight grams of total fat and not more than two grams of saturated fat. Clearly, states should ban junk foods from schools.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. 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.

  • 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

  • Banning Junk Food Would be too Extreme

    Honestly, I think that banning junk food entirely would be too extreme. Instead of banning it, schools should try to encourage students to choose healthier options. Moderation is key, especially when it comes to food consumption. Also, I doubt a ban on junk food would be effective, since students tend to not obey the rules they disagree with. I imagine students would just sneak junk food in, or something like that.

  • Schools could stop selling it

    BUT do not have the right to confiscate it off of children who bring it themselves. A total junk food ban would mean no junk food in schools, even when supplied by the child(ren) themselves. It is wrong to take food of children when they have brought it themselves. Schools can educate about the dangers of junk food and even not sell junk food but a total ban seems wrong.

  • Junk food's shouldn't be banned in schools

    Junk food should not be banned in schools,because,there is no reason for it. Even if you ban it in schools,you can always get it at home or outside.
    We should have junk food, "Variety is the spice of life",and not just eating healthy food.So what i say is that junk food should not be banned in schools,we just have to be careful not to eat too much of it
