My mind says this is a decent move, but my caffeine-addicted ****e of a soul cries "Nooooo!"
I think in the elementary schools it is fine. Little kids should be kept an eye on on.
High School, no. If a teenager wants to eat junk food it's their own business.
That's the closest we ever got to legalized drugs in school with all the junk food. Why do you think the word "junkies" applies to drug users and diabetics?
Banning it from elementary school is a good idea. Middle school, maybe. High school, while ultimately it would be best for the students, they are old enough to make thier own decisions and should be able to buy and eat junk food if they want to.
I don't really eat junk food in school. I hardly ever drink soda and stuff like that so this doesn't really bother me too much. I personally think the amount of soda some people drink is rediculious. One of my friends drinks 4 liters of Mountain Dew a day.
Yes ban it from elementary and maybe Middle
And also if people want junk food for school there's like a store on every street corner, so they'll just get it elsewhere
If the Government isn't going to imporve the state of actual hot food in schools cafeteria's then the banning of the junk food is pretty much a waste of time.
I'm more worried about the discussions of getting rid of reccess within Elmentary Schools.
I think it's a good move, promotes good health.
At my old school, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, we had continual trips into Hogsmeade after our third year. Honeydukes is the sweet shop everyone would go to for fudge, creamy chunks of nougat, pink squares of coconut ice, honey-colored toffees, and various types of chocolate. Absolutely delicious. The sweets and chocolate sold in america are terrible when compared to everything in Honeydukes. No wonder they are banning it.
I got banned from Hogsmeade after buying what I thought were brownies with powdered sugar from Ye Olde Munchies.
Anything that promotes better health in our young people is a good thing...imo.
It could be viewed as a form of brainwashing.................
Hmmmmm....well if it takes brainwashing to get kids to eat better, exercise, and overall take better care of themselves....ok....but i don't see it as brainwashing...i see it as public schools caring about their students and wanting the best for them including the foods they eat...
i think America could do w/ a little of that brainwashing....we're kind of fat...
True.........but health food's just nasty. If they're gonna take out all the food that tastes good, they better put in other healthy foods that taste good.
Americans are slow to catch on. It was banned in my school when I was in sixth grade - which was ten years ago.
This really sounds a lot like the debate over cigarettes. Does the government have the right to ban a product, even if that product is unhealthy? People can make thier own decisions cant they? Its up to them if they want to partake in unhealthy activities, so why should the company that makes that product be penalised for peoples choices?
Still, people are addicted to this stuff, it is making them sick and it is costing tax payers millions or more in medical help. Its sad that people at the adult age have to be treated like children and told what they can and cant eat, but this obesity epidemic is insane. Yes, junk food should be banned from schools.
I like junk food though..
The thing is, if as children they learn to eat healthier, exercise, etc....hopefully as adults their decisions will be better as well.
Who said anything about health food....eating right doesn't mean you only eat Weight Watcher's Smart Ones.
it means understanding and beginning to live the quote...
"eat to live, not live to eat"...
i eat italian food, mexican food, etc....i just do it in moderation, and make good choices...i don't "health food" .... i eat healthier foods...but i enjoy my Michelob Ultra, and my nachos at Papassitos, i just don't eat that every day...every meal...and "exercise" is really the key to all of this....as a kid, i don't remember ever spending more than a few minutes a day in the house during the summer....it was spent outdoors, only coming in to grab a sandwich, or a drink....i go to the pool now, or to parks during the summer, and i see very few if any teenagers on a daily basis outside...
very true. Kids have a great influence in adults habbits.
I remember when I was an 8 year old kid, which was 12 years ago, I told my mom that she should wear the seatbelt(In mexico was alright to be unbuckled), I made her do it and now she does not forget. It is common sense but it's also common sense to not drink or smoke, but people still do it.
The ban is, IMO, a good thing. Let's face it, a lot of kids are not concerned with their own health.
A smart move. Kids are far too dependent on sugar and whatnot these days. At least this can try and encourage them to make healthier choices.
Fabulous choice, don't make it any easier for them to bloat.
On one hand kids are too fat. On the other hand, I'm sick of people telling everyone how they should live.
