Dr Ramadoss, terming that: “Colas and junk food are bad for children’s health. Hence, we want to ban the sale of such products within the school premises,” is in talk with Union Human Resource Development Ministry on the legal aspects of the implementation of the ban at least in the government schools, if not private.

A large number of schools in India allow colas and burgers inside their premises canteen, resulting in diet related chronic disorders among young children. In addition, one of the main causes for diabetes is junk food. Some of the diet-related chronic disorders are cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, cancer etc. All these problems can be controlled if we improve our dietary pattern,” - Ramadoss added.
