This round we asked: If you were paid millions to eat only one food item for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

Rachel Ng, 14, West Island School

Ice cream! Chocolate, vanilla, cookies 'n' cream, strawberry cheesecake ... I love them all.

I had quite a sweet tooth when I was younger and, while I'm slowly growing out of it, ice cream is still one of my favourite foods.

It's perfect, especially on a hot day, although maybe it isn't health-wise if you have to eat it every day.

Vivian Li Wan-yi, 16, Wa Ying College

I'm pretty sure that I would choose jelly as the one food to eat for the rest of my life. I've loved jelly since I was very young as it can cheer me up instantly.

Because of jelly's many flavours, I'd never be bored, even if I had it for every meal. They are quite filling, too.

Jelly with bits of fresh fruit is actually healthy for us. Also, any leftover jelly can be used as a cooling mask, which is great for my skin!

Thomas Lee Ka-chun, 16, Sing Yin Secondary School

Steak is the first thing that I think of. I will never lose my desire for it. Every bite feels like a new experience to me. The last time I cut steak into pieces and devoured the delicious morsels remains fresh in my memory.

Yet from a more realistic point of view, beef contains protein and vitamins. So steak can easily provide me with the essential nutrients for the rest of my life.

Rajinder Pal, 15, Delia Memorial School (Hip Wo)

If I was paid millions to eat one food, it would unquestionably be India's masala dosa. This is no ordinary food - it's heaven-sent.

A masala dosa is a kind of crispy pancake which comes with a spicy mix of mashed potato, coconut chutney, pickles, tomato-and-lentil-based sauces and other condiments. If I was paid only a few thousand dollars, I'd still take the risk - no matter how many dosas I had to eat. It would make me feel as if I was in paradise.

Nicholas Chu Weng-lam, 16, Sing Yin Secondary School

As a sweet-toothed child who frequents snack shops, I'd choose to have cheesecake for the rest of my life. Eating cheesecake is never boring - indeed, I'd be spoilt for choice!

Imagine having cheesecake of every possible flavour in front of you: strawberry, chocolate, toffee ... mmm! Also, the dreamy, creamy topping on the crispy crust will leave a mellow aftertaste.

Elsie Chau Yuen-shan, 16, Po Leung Kuk Mrs Ma Kam Ming Cheung Fook Sien College

I'd choose chocolate milk. If it is the only food I can eat for the rest of my life, at least I'll have what I need for my body to grow, such as fat and protein, because milk contains most of the nutrients a human body needs. I like the taste of chocolate milk, too. It's sweet and tempting, so I will never get tired of it.

Alex Chan, 16, La Salle College

Millions, eh? Beef. Definitely beef. And if I had a choice, it would be Kobe beef.

When I eat beef, I am getting the necessary proteins and minerals such as zinc, phosphorus and iron, and B vitamins. Hopefully, I can also take vitamin pills, or drink fruit juice to get the other vitamins ... if that's not possible then that's too bad.

Joseph Ho, 16, Wah Yan College

I would pick an egg tart. I'll never get bored with those delicious snacks - I can eat them every day, no problem. It is no surprise that a billionaire has said he eats one for breakfast every day.

Natalie Fung Chi-ying, 14, St Paul's Co-educational College

It would undoubtedly be tofu. As a "tofu-fan'', I love its smoothness. Because of its plain flavour, tofu can be used in a wide range of dishes - from honeyed puddings to savoury meats and even sapid noodles. Such a variety of foods will undeniably add flair to my "tofu life". Also, tofu is rich in proteins, calcium and unsaturated fats - so it is definitely a healthy addition to our diets.
