Ever stumped as to what to say when asked why soda shouldn’t be in the schools?
Informed Eating has prepared a list of helpful guidelines that could come to your aid when discussing this controversial topic.
Check out “How to Counter Arguments for Sodas in Schools.” (FYI, I’d recommend whole fruits intead of juice, as they suggest.)
A few examples of Informed Eating’s suggested replies to convince others that soda doesn’t belong in the schools:
“If Coke and Pepsi really cared about education, they would donate money outright, and not require kids to sacrifice their health.
“We do have a freedom of choice problem — you can’t find a healthy drink!” (Paraphrasing Sean Faircloth, Maine State Representative).
“Schools should not be so cash-strapped as to rely on blood money.”
