Manuela Cortes's insight:

This article is really good to know more about junk food. It mentions a really important point. It says that parents try to avoid junk food at home but their efforts are worthless because at school students can buy and eat junk food whenever they want. although the article takes an opinion on the topic aligns with your common sense and gives great solutions to fix the topic. It uses appropriate language and uses great quotes.

Manuela Cortes's insight:

This is a very reliable and useful article. It uses apropriate language and is very easily understood. It uses lots of pictures and links for more information about the topic. The author doesn't take a position about the topic, instead gives great facts that would work perfectly on a piece of writing. This came from a website called "Mother Jones" and this is a health website so it must be a reliable scorce.
