But...
by: Mestrais

I would like to start by agreeing with you; yes, we are the consumers, but it sometimes is a little more complicated than that. First off, students like junk food. That's a fact. But by replacing the junk food (that they like) with the healthy food (that they might not like) you run the risk of students not eating at lunch. This has many problems, but the two major ones are that students who are hungry, tend to focus more on their hunger than on their classes; unproportional eating habits may also lead to weight gain, defeating the purpose of even switching foods (eating junk food is better than no food. Period.) However, comprimise is available through providing both healthy, and junk food. Obesity can be reduced through slowly providing less and less junk food.
