Japan to Put Students on Diet

January 14, 1986|United Press International

TOKYO — Japanese students are in danger of becoming too fat and are being put on a diet, at least at lunchtime, the government said today.

The Health and Welfare Ministry said it will revise the nutrition standard for the school lunch program for the first time in 15 years, beginning in April this year. The ministry launched a school lunch program in 1946, a year after Japan's surrender in World War II, to supplement food shortages.
