The School Canteen policy will be sent out to all schools next week.

Education Minister Doctor Mahendra Reddy says they have done extensive consultations with the canteen operators, school managers, nutritionists and other stakeholders on the issue.

He says the policy is ready for implementation but the canteen operators will be given another two months to clear their stock.

The Minister adds they want children to have healthy meals and move away from junk foods.

He stresses that they want to ensure that children who go out of the school system are physically fit to secure a healthy and better Fiji.
