While most kids have a sweet tooth, it may not be such a bad idea for them to indulge in drinks and desserts that have been given a healthy spin (i.e. less sugar).
To this end, homemade drinks and desserts (e.g. barley, coffee/tea, green bean soup, chin chow and tau huay) that are sold in school canteens should be prepared with minimal sugar – equal to or less than 7g/100ml. Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sweetened solid ingredients like canned fruit in syrup and tapioca pearls should not be used altogether.
On top of that, all commercially prepared drinks, including those sold in vending machines must have the Healthier Choice Symbol (HCS) logo.
