Some schools across the U.S. are banning a Cheetos’ Flamin’
Hot variety from their campuses. Teachers are complaining that the
snack-munching kids are leaving bright red finger prints across desks and
books, but this hot commodity seems to having a far greater effect than just
making a mess.
E.R. doctors reports that patients have come in complaining
of stomach pain after eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos—and that the bright food dye
that turns these crunchies red can discolor your poo, which is seriously
freaky. Schools argue that they are too high in salt (25 percent of your daily
allowance) and fat (26 grams) to be part of the healthy, balanced diet they are
trying to promote.
What do you think?
Should schools be allowed to kick certain snacks outta the building?

I agree with some of the posts before me. The schools should not be telling us what we can and cannot eat. Last year I left my lunch box at school over the weekend and on Monday I ate school lunch. I had to dump the whole lunch that I left in the trash because it was gross. Later the teachers said,"You didn't think we would know would you?" and they held up my lunch and demanded to know who it was. Since when is it their job to enforce us to eat?

I can see where they're coming from, but honestly banning things from schools doesn't mean kids aren't still going to eat it. So it won't really make a huge impact. If they like them and can't eat them at school they're going to eat them at home.

yes of course. you only spend about seven hours at school five days a week. you have the rest of your time to eat what ever and kids shouldn't even be eating during class.

i don't really care if they're banned, but constitutionally i think they have the right, therefore kids should just deal with it. eating stuff like this for a snack isn't a big deal, but when kids are bringing just junk or spending all of their money on vending machine snacks then something should be done. of course, this is a touchy issue since the schools can't tell kids how to live and eat beyond whatever they learn in health class. i know this issue has been brought to light in my own school with the banning of unsealed water bottles but not giant cans of soda in lunch. teachers are at a loss because they don't want to see these kids stuff themselves with crap, but they can't legally do anything except ban stuff, but trust me there's always something else out there.
btw, there's a video with a bunch of kids rapping about their hot cheetos that we watched in homeroom that is kind of sad but also pretty funny.
