I think we should get rid of vending machines that sell junk food in schools in order to fight childhood obesity. On cdc.org it says that "childhood obesity affects approximately 12.5 million children and teens" and is increasing. Junk food is very unhealthy and increases childhood obesity. Another comment from cdc.org also says that "sugar drinks are just as bad as junk food." Sugar drinks in vending machines should be taken out and replaced with a sport drink or water. Sugar drinks may taste good, but they contribute to childhood obesity.
