Write a letter to the Editor of an English daily about the unhealthy food sold in the school premises or around the school

The Editor,
The Telegraph, 

       I shall be highly obliged if you kindly allow me a little space in the columns of your highly esteemed daily so that I may ventilate my opinion to draw the attention of the concerned authority about the unhealthy food sold in the school premises or around the school.

    Of late, most of the school going students are very much prone to obesity and health issues due to their life styles and their food habits. As a result, it leads to many diseases like diabetics, obesity, high BP, gastric and even cancer. It is proved that these diseases mainly come from their food habit. It is seen that, in school or around the school, many food items like junk food, cold drinks, fast foods, cut fruits are sold. They cause different physical trouble. Also, few ingredients of those foods effect student’s brain and heart directly. Besides food colours used in those junk items are very much unhealthy. Overall, they hamper the study of those students and due to their unhealthy condition, they cannot get enough energy to concentrate in study or other co-curriculum activities. 

      I, in view of all these, think that the education department should ban such junk food in and around the school premises. Also, the vendor should be forced to sell fruit juice and other healthy items.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,
Bappa Biswas
