Absolutely not! Refined sugar is a very addictive drug. Why we allow it to be legal is absolutely insane!

The children should be able to choose. For instance, if it's a really young children in elementary school students, than no. But if it is educated students who know what sugar and soda is (such as kids in high school), they know what they are doing. I've seen kids in high school working out and eating healthy, but maybe having a sugary snack or soda once in a while. They balance it out, they are a more wise and independent now to know how to balance their sugar. Just my opinion

No. Our children have no shortage of junk food options outside the school day. The least we should do is to help make their choices, in school, healthy(ier).
