A) Well, I guess that most people eat junk food like crisps, chocolate and biscuits for their snacks.
A) I suppose official workers mainly eat junk food like biscuits but other people sometimes eat fruit or something healthier.
Q) Do you think eating snacks is good for your health?
A) I think that if you’re hungry, it’s perfectly fine to have some fruit but if people eat junk food between meals, then it’s really unhealthy.
