Junk Food Sales In School

By Riley Gaston

Whats The Problem?

America is facing a crises because of our eating habits. Sixty million adults (20 percent of the population) are obese.Nearly 300,000 people die each year from complications associated with being obese or overweight.

The Solution

Soda and junk food will be replaced with more nutritious alternatives. You will still have choices, but instead of candy or chips, you may have to have an apple or a carrot.

Another Problem

To begin with, there is a problem of defining junk food. Are we talking about potato chips, soda and pastries? what about fried chicken fingers, cheeseburgers, and pizza that they serve at school cafeterias.

Another Solution

It has always been the role of government to help solve problems, including and especially health crises. obesity is a health epidemic across are country, and we have a responsibility as a government and a society to do all we can to promote good nutrition and healthy eating so we can reserve this alarming trend.

My Point Of View/opinions

Honestly i think that there should be no junk food in school for extreme health reasons.Like being over weight or obese, or can get diseases.CNN news is debating whether or not to have junk food in school. Also Dr.Jae says that "the society should ban junk food in school".
