Education: South Korea bans junk food in schools reports that soft drinks, instant noodle and fries will disappear from school cafeterias starting this year. The Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education unveiled basic health principles for students, which will ban the sale of specified unhealthy foods at school cafeterias or through vending machines.

The new measures are follow-ups to the Ministry of Education's policy announced in September last year against the sale of soft drinks to promote the health of students. Other provinces and cities will also ban the sale of those junk foods at school.
