School canteens used to sell a mix of food and drink ranging from the nutritious and wholesome to sweet drinks and snack food. Student choice was paramount. Education was part of helping children make choices.
Then the food police happened along abd school canteens were limited to selling everything nutritious. Fun foods and flavoured drinks were outlawed.
Now sales have gone down, canteens are struggling or closed and students buy what they want from shops before and after school or by going off at lunchtime to the nearest delicatessen.
But the food police are happy.
