Sale of junk food banned in UP schools

Uttar Pradesh (UP) government has directed all ICSE (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education), CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) and UP Board schools to prohibit the sale of junk food within the school premises and outside.

The initiative was taken by the Secondary Education Council after receiving instructions from the Union Health and Planning Ministry.

The Secretary of the UP Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (Board of High School and Intermediate Education) has written a letter to the principals of all schools asking them to put a ban on sale of carbonated cold drinks, junk food and high sugar content food from their premises as these cause various diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol level at later part of life.

The letter also mentioned the high Trans fat levels in junk foods such as wafers, salted and fried items.

The letter has promoted school authorities to encourage nutritious and healthy food amongst the school children.

The letter also stated that severe action will be taken against the DOIS (district inspector of schools) of that area if the orders were not made effective.
