National Junk Food Day

National Junk Food Day



Date When Celebrated : Always July 21st

For some of us, every day is Junk Food Day. For the rest of us, National Junk Food Day is an opportunity to guiltlessly eat your favorite junk food.

Dietitians will tell you that junk food is any food that contains little nutritional value. We also include foods that are high in salts, fats, and sugars. In other words, junk food is all that tasty stuff that the dietitians, and Mom, say is bad for us.

On Junk Food Day, you get to eat anything you want. Eat any amounts that you want, too. Tomorrow, however, it's back to a healthy diet.

Please Note: Junk food may be hazardous to your health. After all, mom knows what's best for you. Do so at your own risk. That risk includes Mom saying: "I told you so!"


Origin of National Junk Food Day:
Our research found lots of information on what is and what isn't junk food. We found no information on the origin of this day. It was most likely created by a diet conscious individual or group who desired to eat junk food, without guilt, at least one day a year.

Creating an official "National" day requires an Act of Congress. We found no record of this. While Congress may be accused of going on occasional junkets, we don't believe they would support junk food.

    I indulged too much in the past which causes the health problems I have now..... So I guess "they" can celebrate the day without me. I'll stick to trying to get healthy.....
