Schools to finally clean the crap out of the tuck-shops

By johnboy 25 September 2005 42

The Canberra Times is reporting that after far too long moves are afoot to clean out the crap food sold in schools, turning our kiddies into blimps.

Will we see any investigation into the incentives offered and accepted to allow these obviously harmfull things to be sold in our schools?

What’s Your opinion?

Well, since i’m in high school now, i absolutley agree.
At the beginning of the year, we had heaps of junk food in our canteen, and uhh, milko’s cost 10 cents.
Now, we only have two varietys of freddo frogs, gobstoppers, and milko’s cost 30 cents.
Quite alot of us have now brought lollies from the nearest food store (amazingly we have a petrol station across the road, who’s junk food’s pretty cheap)
And most of the kids at my school (kambah..) are sorta overweight. and like, we still have fatty foods for sale. And our p&c does nothing about it.
And i just realised. we have a choccie vending machine in our canteen, which everyone uses. and we’re all getting fatter. and no one does anything about it..

stupid goverment..

Just heard Stanhope on the news say that there are already procedures in place to follow up the food issue but that it is not a high priority.

And so we have a good idea that is not going to be followed through….

Sad. Those procedures are obvously not working.
