NEW HEALTH PROMOTION BOARD PROG FORCE CHILDREN TO BUY SET MEALS IN SCHOOL?

Dear A.S.S,

My child school this year start this “Healthy Meals in School Programme” by the Health Promotion Board to my dismay.

Last year a bowl of porridge cost 70 cents
This year the same bowl of porridge cost 1.50, with an additonal plate of fruits (a few longans and a slice of watermelon)

I emailed the school but got no reply. Then I emailed the parents support group of the school and another parent shared this with me

I feel that this is very wrong.

The idea of introducing better eating habits to kids is good, but to sell food only in sets is wrong

For example: My kid packs food to school, but sometimes she likes to buy a little more and is now forced to buy a whole set.

It is quite ridiculous.

Where can I feedback to?
