The Hindustan Times reports that schools in the Nagaland have now been directed by the Nagaland Board of School Education (NBSE) to ensure that no junk food is sold in or near their premises.

What this junk food ban means

The ban means putting in measures to remove any HFSS foods (High Fat, Salt and Sugar) including chips, fried food and soft drinks from being sold in school canteens and around school areas. The Nagaland Board of School Education also recommends that children be made aware of issues relating to obesity, junk food, and the importance of physical activity.
