Junk Foods continues to be sold everywhere. Junk Foods contributes to the childhood obesity epidemic and other preventable diseases, and also adds to the garbage crisis with the tons of trash created by the production and consumption of these unhealthy food that are often packed or served in single use plastic materials, so the alternative to these is a tasty and healthy foods like fruits and vegetables which is more nutritional and with a lot of medicinal properties. so we need the urgent need for concerted actions that will protect our young consumers from childhood obesity.

I do agree that junk food is everywhere, and it does not help that all snack foods that are bad for us are sold in such big packs. I do think though that we need to teach children the values of healthy eating ourselves, this will go far when it comes to them making their own choices about the foods they eat. We eat healthily all the time, but we do have the odd junk food treat. I agree about packaging on foods there is always so much of it to throw away.
