Is fish and chips (as illustrated - nothing else) really 'junk food'? Not ideal as a daily dish, granted. But as part of a reasonable diet? And as it's deep fried it's far less likely to carry bacteria than certain other types of takeaway!

I wouldn't class fish n chips as junk food! I would say good food, ideal to fuel you if you're doing hard physical work.
