Disciplinary action if instant food is sold in schools

Nov 2, 2010 11:28:03 AM - itnnews.lk

The Education Ministry will take disciplinary action against principals of schools if the sale of instant food and soft drinks will continue unabated in the school canteens.

The instructions have been issued to the schools through a circular. Minister Bandula Gunawardna said that the new rules will be implemented compulsorily from next January under the circular. A new circular has also been issued to close canteens that sell instant food and soft drinks. Although sale of instant foods and soft drinks are banned in school premises, the law has still not been enforced.
