Blog: Voluntary junk food ban in schools?
Catherine Sleep | 12 January 2004
The Canadian soft drink industry has decided voluntarily to withdraw soda from elementary schools. Will junk food be next?
Given that Ontario Education Minister Gerard Kennedy has declared that “our goal is to have a complete ban on junk food in elementary schools,” it seems likely that snack food manufacturers might follow the lead of their colleagues in the soft drinks sector.
It makes sense to me to limit the availability of less healthy food and drinks in venues where parents have little influence over their kids’ food choices, such as schools.
