Since the food offered at school cafeterias and truck shops is considered fatty and sweet, 14 schools in the Austrian state of Styria have decided to eliminate burgers, potato chips and sweet carbonated drinks from their campus food. From now on, only healthy food of high quality will be offered for purchase, such as fresh vegetables and fruits. Students the age of 14 or older often go to school without bringing their own lunch from home and simply buy what is offered at the truck shops and cafeterias. Therefore, there is a responsibility to offer high quality food, says Alois Stöger, the Austrian Minister for Health.
