A lot of kids and teens at DRA and schools around the country are eating too much junk food; therefore, junk food should be banned in schools.

If kids and teens eat too much junk food, they will become very ill and in the worst cases, obese ( TimesUnion.com).  Parents should be monitoring their kids on what they are eating but when kids are at school, parents have no control over what they eat. 

Proponents for allowing junk food at school argue that kids  should be allowed to make the choice to decline junk food or they will never learn self control. If they deprived of junk food, they will want it even more. 

Christopher Pelayo who agrees that junk food should be banned states,  “I think junk food is bad because it makes you sick, & it has a lot of chemicals.  Also, it’s bad for your health, for example, candy gives you cavities.”
