The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport has launched a food safety campaign that appeals to all school principals to ensure that food served in cafeterias are safe, nutritious and of good quality. The campaign aims at raising awareness among school committee, headmaster, cafeteria vendors, and other relevant stakeholders to provide healthy and clean food to students. The ministry has also issued a directive that bans the selling of six kinds of food at all private and state schools that are expired, alcoholic drinks, tobacco products, food with unknown source of origin, energy drinks and food and beverages with high sugar content.
