Authorities are trying to banish soft drinks and hamburgers, containing to much sugar, salt and fat from the American educational institutions, because they believed that school students  become fat, because of the easy access to unhealthy nutrients in schools. A major study conducted in schools showed that this massive mistake.

The results of this study was published in the Sociology in Education journal.Professor Van Hook stated that the obesity of the children is not caused by the choice of the school canteens. In school, students do not have much time to eat, the dangerous period occures at home in front of the TV with constant nibbling especially if the parents show a continous example of eating. (MTI)
