No more junk!
Schools should ban junk food because our country (New Zealand) is on the list of the obese world list (24th). 30.60% of us are overweight. That is really bad for our country including the entire world.
Who thinks that schools should ban junk food? Well I do because it's unhealthy for you and has effects to your body. But what you don't know is that eating healthy is good for you,it's also good for your body. What happens if you eat junk food everyday? Well those people who eat too much junk they can suffer from many serious side effects and health problems,including weight gain,tooth decay,diabetes and heart disease. A large part of fat and sodium typically found in these type of food.
Slack eating habits are developed at an early age lead to a lifetime of real health consequences. School is where children spend most of their time learning, and it is where we lay the foundation for healthy habits. Did you know that New Jersey is the first state to adopt a comprehensive school nutrition policy that bans candy, soda, and other junk food. I didn’t. Maybe we New zealand should do that,but I think it’s too much.
If you would to go to a school in New Jersey, your vending machines and school stores 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 it will be eliminated from the list.Snacks will no longer contain no more than eight grams of total fat because no one deserves to be treated like a pig. Nothing more than two grams of saturated fat will be allowed in that school. So what are your opinions about New jersey think about that? Soda and junk food from the school will get replaced with some nutritious alternative food.
Last of all if you don’t eat healthy short term effects of unhealthy eating include nutritional deficiencies, stress and a lack of energy. There are lots of long term effects of unhealthy eating habits, including obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type-2 diabetes, depression and certain types of cancer. So if you don't want to end up like them other people well you should start eating healthy at schools.
Therefore I believe we should ban junk food from schools because it is unhealthy for us kids and so that nothing bad goes into our stomach. So if you want to be healthy and fit well start to eat healthy.
