Healthy and Unhealthy Food

Mark and Sarah are planning to go for lunch together. They are talking about healthy and unhealthy foods…

Sarah: Hi Mark! It’s almost lunch time. Do you want to have lunch together?

Mark: Yes, let’s go to the café. I’m so hungry today! I didn’t have any breakfast this morning.

Sarah: Really? Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!

Mark: I know, I don’t usually have time because I leave early…but I usually have a chocolate bar when I arrive at school, so I don’t feel hungry during class.

Sarah: That’s not good for your health! I have cereal and fruit every morning. It helps me to concentrate in class. What are you having for lunch today?

Mark: Mm… maybe a burger with some chips…

Sarah: Didn’t you have that yesterday too?

Mark: Yes, it’s my favourite! What are you having for lunch today?

Sarah: Mm… I think I’ll have a salad or a healthy sandwich. I enjoy eating healthy food because it makes me feel good…

Mark: But a burger and chips tastes so much better…
