This is good but people will find there way to unhealthy food somehow. Unhealthy food should be more expensive than healthy food though, which could help with people's health

And what if people want to eat unhealthy food more than to be healthy?

If you tax unhealthy food why not tax sedentary activities? A 30% book tax to encourage exercise? 

I saddens me how little respect there is for individual liberty nowdays.

This will unevenly effect the poor as the rich can just choose more expensive food if they want it more healthy, but the poor simply have to choose food that taste worse if they can't afford unhealthy food that taxing it will do.

People need to start taking care of themselves better rather than relying on government taking away all the bad choices they can make.

There is ALWAYS a shop just around the corner from a school. Kids will buy from there. Or their parents will continue to give them unhealthy stuff. These rules never work.

This is BS because healthy food is cheaper than unhealthy. If you buy bulk meat, potatoes, vegetables and make a huge stew that serves 4 people a meal for the next four meals you can do so for under $10. Try doing that for ready meals, or McDonalds, or other unhealthy sources.

It's true.  People make the "junk food cheaper" arguement based on calorie per dollar anaysis... which are fatally flawed.

If anyone really can't understand why, just eat a Candy bar in comparison to an Apple.

The Apple is more filling AND has less calories.

Then why do people need to tax fast food more? Given that the stew option is so cheap (and for some people to time consuming) why don't people go for it if it's more healthy?

Because they Chose not to, simply as that. And if i choose to eat junk food and you choose to eat healthy that's fine. If i come crying to you some day if i eat to much that i need medical healp or something, tell me to fuck off.

If i want a candy bar and not an apple, that's my choice, not your's.

A rule like that is already applied here in my country but, I don't really know if it's working...



Granola bars and trail mix are delicious. Good ole raisins and peanuts.



If this happened in my old high school there will definitely be less que lines XD

This reminds me of that one thats so raven episode where they banned sodas so they smuggled sodas in by hiding them in milk cartons. XD

I think it's a good start at least. You can never entirely moderate what kids are eating. If you want to go out to the shops and buy stupid shit, then all the power to you, but while you're at school they should try to entrench healthy eating habits.
