Wait, what? In an attempt to curb childhood obesity and other health problems, Dubai’s Food Safety Department has decided to fine schools for offering junk food.

 

Turns out they first asked schools to cut what they considered “junk food” five years ago. And then they found that some still offered fries, chocolate, croissants, burgers and sugary drinks. *GASP*

So now they’re threatening fines for schools that are not offering low-calorie, low-salt alternatives.

 

Sorry children of Dubai. No more delicious fries. No more sweet, sweet chocolate. Also, croissants? Who knew those were junk food? I thought they were just bread. Oh well. Enjoy your carrots or whatever.

WE SAID THIS: This is probably one of the few moments we thank God we are adults so we can eat junk food whenever we want!
