Draft regulation for safe, wholesome, nutritious food for school children to be put in place

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is currently trying to implement a program that focuses on healthy eating habits of students across various schools in the country. Pawan Kumar Agarwal, the head of the program, says that while it has gained traction in Delhi and Tamil Nadu, the program is yet to reach the point of having nation-wide scope. Speaking about the issue, he said, “Not merely confining to health and wellness ambassadors and coordinators, it has to be the whole of school which has to be involved in this exercise of getting the school children to eat the right stuff,". The FSSAI has come out with draft regulations on healthy diets for school children as per a court directive. Agarwal says that the initiative is in the process of consolidation at the moment and that the challenge they face is to make it a mass movement. The FSSAI has also proposed to impose a ban on the advertising and promotion of unhealthy food products in school premises and within a 50-meter radius of schools.
