Edmonton Canada bans junk food in schools An article in CBC News Canada reports on this ban. I applaud their decision and understand how hard this is when companies like the big soda companies put tremendous pressure on school boards to sell soda. This ban doesn’t include what is brought from home. So you can still send anything you want to school with your child. I would love to see this start here in the US. Maybe we can curb the childhood diseases that are on an increase and obesity in children. They can’t fight for themselves so we have to do it for them.
