CHINA - In an attempt to make school canteens safer, Henan province has released a number of food safety regulations, including requiring the heads of schools to accompany students to dinner.
In a report by Dahe Daily on Oct 30, school heads will periodically accompany students at dinner in school canteens. School canteens in the province will be open to the public, including the parents of students, according to the regulation.
The province has 25 million students at different levels of schools.
Schools in the province's urban areas and some rural areas are encouraged to introduce approved food and beverage service providers to manage the canteens.
An inspection of canteens will be launched before the end of November.
