Leaving food: 15th-21st September

I think in cafes your parents & the staff at the cafe should give you small portions because most of the children at the cafes leave their main course & start eating their dessert. I don't like people leaving their food. There are 3 reasons. 1 in other countries some people don't have enough money to buy their food and they go hungry. 2. it is bad for the environment and 3. it is unhealthy because the desserts are usually sugary.
