There are as many nutritionists that will tell clients that depriving one's self is not the way to go when changing eating patterns. It is more important not to see food as good or bad but rather in terms of its own value. If something is a treat and has been deemed high in sugar, fat or salt etc you treat it as a treat not a food. You develop skills that will allow you to occasionally eat something from that list.
For many depriving ones self tends to result in binge eating of it when the willpower has crumbled.When you know that once a month, or whatever has been decided upon, you can have a forbidden fruit it just becomes something that will be nice to have down the road.
Schools are being overly reactive and need to teach moderation not abstinence.
