Candy Strikers

Fourth and fifth-graders at North Side Elementary school students in Fort Lauderdale, FL refused selling chocolate bars and potato chips because of the unhealthiness of the snacks. The childern were raising money for a weeklong trip in May to Williamsburg, VA and Washington, DC. Ten-year old, Daphnie Auguste said:
If they tell us to don't eat junk food and then after school we sell it, that disobeys what they said. I'm happy because people won't get fat. But I'm sad because how are we going to get the money to go on our field trip?
