Junk food

Junk food is an informal term applied to some foods that are perceived to have little or no nutritional value (i.e. containing "empty calories"), or to products with nutritional value but which also have ingredients considered unhealthy when regularly eaten, or to those considered unhealthy to consume at all. 
Junk foods are typically ready-to-eat convenience foods containing high levels of saturated fatssalt, or sugar, and little or no fruit, or dietary fiber; junk foods thus have little or no health benefits. Common junk foods include salted snack foods (chips, crisps), candy, gum, , fried fast food and carbonated beverages (sodas).
RIS is very proud to be a Healthy Food School. Please leave all of your junk food at home.
