National Junk Food Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on July 21
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!"
Quote of the Day: "
People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us
who do." - - Isaac Asimov
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 or a presidential proclamation. 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.
