Ed. Committee Recommends Banning Certain Vending Machines From Schools.

: 07/12/2018 - 09:51

Vending machines which sell unhealthy food in schools should be banned according to the Oireachtas Education Committee, which is chaired by Kildare South Fianna Fáil TD, Fiona O'Loughlin

The suggestion has been made in a new report which aims to tackle the issue of obesity in schools.

The report also suggests unhealthy snacks shouldn't be made available for sale in school canteens.

It's calling on schools to teach children cookery skills from a young age in a bid to to help them lead healthier lifestyles long-term.
