Junk Food

 

You all know what junk food is - stuff like potato chips, soda pop, and candy. Probably you've heard people say it's not good for you.

I don't think that's really true. Even junk food has some food value. But it is true that a steady diet of junk food is not good because you don't get a balanced diet of vitamins, minerals, and protein that you need to grow.

We have what you might call junk food in troop meetings. They're the games we play just for fun - not to learn any special skill but just because we enjoy them. There's not a thing wrong with "junk food" games, and I hope you enjoy them as much as most of you do real junk food.

But they're not all of Scouting. In our troop activities, we try to give you a balanced diet of Scouting, with some instruction skills and plenty of chances to advance in rank and to learn useful things.

Take advantage of those chances. Don't just enjoy the junk food and leave the rest of the meal.
