Junk Foods versus Healthy Foods
Junk foods are those food materials which are perceived to be having none or very little nutritional value when consumed. As it has been revealed, junk foods’ ingredients are incapable of sustaining healthy body; which renders them somewhat useless in the body. However, junk food materials ought not to be under-rated in terms of their significance in the body. At sometimes, junk foods play important roles in human body; as they are involved in various metabolic activities, despite of them having low nutritional value. Though junk foods have been considered unhealthy for consumption, they have been found to be the most consumed foods among the people, as they are pleasurable to eat. In most cases, junk foods have been found to form addictions and obsessive as their continuous intake arouses the urge of wanting to consume them more often (Sanjur 88).
Most health care providers have been advocating for reduction of intake of junk foods among the people, as they lead to reduction of capacities to consume healthy foods. Junk healthy foods are always ready to consume and therefore, the tendency of people consuming them more often than healthy foods is high. For example sugary and fatty foods like ice creams and cakes among others have been found to be most liked by children, due to their availability and easy access without wasting a lot of time. As a result, many children end up concentrating in consuming such foods in larger amounts than healthy foods. Soft drinks like sodas also have been found to be liked among all the age-groups, despite having not worthy nutritional value. Such kinds of food materials have always been habit-forming, resulting into failure to improve one’s health; as such foods have no credible nutritional values (Winkleman 28).
