A Proposal to Separate Fast Food and Schools

Story: A Proposal to Separate Fast Food and Schools

A NY city councilman is fighting to put a restraining order on fast-food chains. He wants to ban them from being close to schools. Evidently if Burger King and Taco Bell move just a few blocks away, they become completely out of reach and teens will discontinue eating there. While I am not suggesting that fast-food joints don't contribute to our health problems, I don't think the solution is this easy. Let's start with educating youth about proper eating habits, and offer them more fitness options (for example- putting recess and P.E. back in schools?!) Just because popular books and movies try and convince us otherwise, McDonalds cannot take all the blame on this issue.
