Called  the  Food  Safety  and  Standards  (Safe  Food  and  Healthy  Diets  for  School  Children) Regulations, 2019, these regulations are based on FSSAI’s 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 ‘junk food’ 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.
