The use of Ketchup was interdicted in school cafeteria in France thanks to the propaganda of healthy diet.
There is just one exception allowed. Cafeterias may serve ketchup only with French fries and just one time a week. The new rules also stipulate the increase of vegetable dishes on the menu and the decrease of the quantity of fat in the food.
The chairman of National, Christophe Hebert, explained in an interview:
“Canteens have a public health mission, but also an educative mission. We have to ensure children become familiar with French recipes so that they can hand them down to the following generation.”
On the other hand, mayonnaise is still on the menu.
Denmark authorities have introduced, not long ago, a tax on fatty foodstuffs, such as milk, butter and vegetable oil, pizza, cheese, and meat with the content of over 3.2 percent of sat fats. As a result, one kilo of butter has become $1.5 more expensive.
In September, Hungary put into effect a new law. The food abundant with salt and sugar is taxed.
The British authorities admit that the number of people who suffer of obesity in England is one of the largest in the world. So they are thinking about taxing high-calorie food.
