You had recently attended a seminar by health experts on why schools should ban vending machine selling soft drinks as well as the sale of junk food and food with low nutritional value at the canteen. Write a report for your class teacher.

 

Report on a seminar to ban sale of soft drinks and junk food

Our parents and teachers always stressed the importance of eating fresh and nutritional food because they are packed with vitamins and have low fat and sugar content. In fact, a healthy diet ensures that we do not contract diseases such as heart problems, diabetes, high blood pressure and others. Eating healthily also prolong sour lives.

The recent seminar I had attended also emphasized the same principles of consuming foods that are rich in nutritional value. The health experts who spoke at the seminar suggested that students and teachers should join forces to ban vending machines which sell soft drinks. they also urge us to make efforts to ensure canteens do not sell junk food.

Soft drinks are spiked with sugar and have no nutritional content. The main ingredients of these carbonated rinks are water, sugar and colorings which are harmful to us over the long term. excessive sugar consumption contribute to diabetes which is life threatening. those who consume too much sugar too are at risk of becoming obese which can lead to medical complications. Thus, schools should only allow the presence of vending machines that stock health drinks such as soy bean milk, yoghurt drink, herbal teas and others. The latter has low sugar content but rich in protein and carbohydrate.

Junk food or fast food such as burgers, fries, donuts, cakes, cookies, chocolates and savories are not good for our health. Junk food contains harmful additives and colorings. Thus, school canteens should not stock these food. Instead, canteen operators should be allowed only to sell rice, noodles, pasta, bread, fresh salad and other raw vegetables as well as fruits and juices.

The experts stress that only through healthy eating can we ensure students perform well academically. students in fact waste their parents' money buying food that provides zero health benefits. The link between eating nutritious food and performance in examinations has been well established. Junk food only makes a student lethargic as he or she is deprived of essential vitamins.

The health experts also suggested that the ministry of education subsidizes food costs at canteen so that students have access to quality food. It is a common knowledge that nutritionally rich food tend to be more expensive and thus canteen operators are reluctant to sell them. However, if the government provides subsidies to these operators as well as food coupon to make health food more affordable to students, it would be successful in creating a society which is health conscious.
