This means that it can widespread in our mouths and can make our mouths more dingy. The reason why our mouths are being contaminated; is because of the food we eat which is high in sugar; this gives a higher risk of tooth decay. The symptoms of tooth decay are holes or pits. To prevent this in a school environment, we should provide the children with all types of food components as an equally amount, including food with fats. As we now know, food which is high in sugar can cause tooth decay, but we need every food component. They should include food which have calcium, because it helps with the growth of teeth.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

The start of a good piece of work here. Two health diseases caused by poor diet have been described and suggestions are given as to how they can be improved. Well done for including the criteria to be addressed.
I would have liked to have seen a little more information in relation to Rickets - what other foods apart from milk could help? Perhaps detail regarding the source of the information could be provided so the reader can follow up what has been said.
There were several spelling & grammar errors which could be minimised by careful proof-reading.
Overall though a good piece of work.
4/5
