Junk Food Shouldn’t be Banned in Schools
Junk food can actually be good for you! Did you ever know that? It all depends on the way it’s cooked and what it has been mixed with. That’s why I think junk food shouldn’t be banned. If you think it should be banned, here is an example: it’s late and our parents didn’t cook. What do we do? Order fast food/junk food and bring it to school! So that’s one reason why junk food is good! It’s easy to find when you’re in a rush. Don’t believe me? Let us continue then.
Times of India reports that a recent study says that certain junk food is actually good for you because it contains a good amount of antioxidants and can be good for the heart. Like popcorn, dark chocolate brownies, chocolate bars, crackers, baked snacks, and processed cheese. All these foods I just named are junk food, yet studies say that they are good for you.According to The Health Guide, pizza and French Fries can be good for you. The article said that French Fries apparently are a good source of Vitamin C and it has a lot of fiber. And when pizza is made right, it can be a good source of calcium and vitamins. When I read this I was surprised and glad. Surprised for I was told that pizza and fries aren’t the best food to eat. Glad because it helps me with my disagreement.
Most people say that junk food should be banned in schools because it contains high levels of calories from the sugar and fat in it. Also that it gives you a higher chance of getting a disease. This information was found in Wikipedia. Although all of this is true, there have been many studies showing that some junk food is good for you. And when you are in a hurry and can’t cook, usually people would buy fast food/junk food. So if you yourself are in a hurry and can’t cook, being able to buy fast food/junk food and not be able to bring it for your child’s lunch is a bit frustrating, is it not?
No matter what others claim about junk food being bad, I believe that what The Health Guide and Times of India say is true. If you still disagree, then think of when a kid has a birthday party. And the food is all vegetables and fruits. Would you be excited to go to his/her party? I would say no. It wouldn’t make me excited to go to his/her party.
I hope you think about this and begin to agree with me. And for some people it’s always good to know that junk food can be healthy.
