With the aim to ensure safe and wholesome food for School children FSSAI has proposed a draft regulation titles Food Safety and Standards (Safe Food and healthy diets for School Children) Regulations, 2019.At the heart of these regulations is a fundamental idea to make it clear what is healthy for children and what is not.
Called the Food Safety and Standards (Safe Food and Healthy Diets for School Children) Regulations, 2019, these regulations are based on FSSAIâs 10-point charter for food sold, supplied to school children. As per the norms, the FSSAI has sought a prohibition on sale of food commonly called as âjunk foodâ to school children. The apex food regulator has said that foods which are referred to as foods high in fat, sugar and salt (HFSS) cannot be sold to school children in school canteens/ mess premises/ hostel kitchens or within 50 metre of the school campus.
