Why in this sentence used被? Without 被our sentence was correct. 所以我们被禁止买垃圾食品 我们被禁止买垃圾食品=We are forbidden to buy junk food 我们禁止购买垃圾食品=We forbid buying junk food The contexts in which these two sentences are used are different. "我们被禁止买垃圾食品" focuses on someone who does not allow us to buy. For example, “We were forbidden to buy junk food because our mother thought it was hazardous to our health” “我们禁止购买垃圾食品” is to tell others about this rule. For example, “Our school forbid buying junk food, so don't let me find out who buys junk food”.

被 means be. For example, be changed = 被改变; be used = 被使用。 With 被 in your sentence, “所以我们被禁止买垃圾食品“ means "So, we're forbidden to buy junk food". Without 被 in your sentence, “所以我们禁止买垃圾食品“ would become "So, we forbid to buy junk food".
