8. Reading and speaking
Read some children’s answers as for eating junk food and tell about your attitude to this problem. Do you eat junk food? If so, what kind do you eat?
Angela (the UK). What junk foods do I eat? I like potato chips, chocolates, candy bars but these days because of diets though I don’t usually eat a lot, but of course during the party with my friends we always buy lots and lots of junk food and we’ll finish in an hour. Actually I like it, but I’m controlling myself right now.
Fritz (Germany). The junk food I tend to eat is gummy bears because I like, like the gummy kind of candy, gummy bears, sour patch kids, but I don’t think I eat too much junk food because I don’t eat too much cake, chocolate, cookies, and the dairy product section, so but if I had to pick a junk food that I eat the most, it’s sweets like gummy bears, starbursts, skittles.
Cathy (England). How much junk food? Well, actually I try really hard not to eat junk food. I try to go for a long time without eating crips and chocolate and cakes, but often I tend to ignore that and eat them anyway. I think it goes in phases. For a long time I’ll not have any and then for a week or two weeks I will eat cake, cake, cake, chocolate, crisps, all of the time, so maybe, certainly at those time I eat too much. The rest of the time, no, I think it’s OK.
Olga (Australia). I don’t eat junk food, sweet junk food, so I’m actually lying, I don’t eat sweet junk food. I like McDonalds breakfast, but any other things to do with junk food I’m not really partial too. I like chocolate occasionally, but very bitter chocolate. I quite like eating cooking chocolate bars.
Rodger (Canada). What junk food do I eat? Well, I enjoy potato chips and chocolate and cookies. I’m actually what you call a junk food fanatic. I enjoy eating junk food. I try not to eat too much of it. I used to eat more of it when I was younger, but I’ve kind of trimmed it down a little bit, and I got older, however, I still enjoy a good bag of potato chips while I watch TV, or a chocolate bar occasionally, after lunch or dinner, so I would say. I enjoy junk food but I try not to eat too much of it now.
Ian (the USA). Actually, I don’t eat a lot of junk food, but I try to keep pretty healthy with what I eat, but if I slip and I do eat any food that’s not healthy it’s usually fast food. Like I almost never eat at McDonald’s, but if I’m really hungry, or I’m really broke and don’t have a lot of money, or I just want something fast, I might drop in a McDonalds, once every two weeks or something like that.
