Education Secretary Ruth Kelly has announced a ban on junk food in schools from next September. Addressing the 2005 Labour party conference in Brighton, Kelly also announced a ban on fatty food made of reclaimed meat, as well as sugary, salty treats. The ban would affect both canteens and vending machines, which would instead be compulsorily required to sell healthy options such as water, milk and fruit. Addressing the "scandal of junk food", Kelly told delegates: "Today I can announce that I will ban low quality reprocessed bangers high in fat, salt and sugar being served in schools from next September. "And because children need healthy options throughout the school day, I can also announce that from next September, no school will be able to have vending selling crisps, chocolate and sugary fizzy drinks." Responsibility for monitoring the new regulations will go to Ofsted school inspectors, a move that has baffled some teachers’ leaders, who have otherwise broadly welcomed the move. John Dunford, general secretary of the Secondary Heads Association, said: "Food inspectors are not asked to inspect the quality of education and education inspectors should not be asked to inspect the quality of food." Similarly, the food industry expressed approval, though there was reservation about the value of banning food to promote a balanced diet. The School Meals Review Panel, set up in the wake of Jamie Oliver’s school meals campaign earlier this year, will meet at the beginning of October to decide which products to proscribe.
