Teens & Junk Food

Teens & Junk foodÖ. Should there be Limits at School?

I do not think there should be limits at school for the junk food because itís really their choice what they want to eat. If teens are obese, or even slightly overweight, then there goes the problem. Thatís when I think junk food is a problem, but you cannot punish everyone due to the fact of a few others. Just give an extra gym class to a heavy student, or just ask them to join an after-school program or athletic event. Other kids just like them could be there to join and support the others so they donít feel bad about.
