In an effort to encourage children and teenagers to develop healthy eating habits, the South Korean government is to ban coffee from all school campuses.

South Korea’s Ministry of Food and Drug Safety on Thursday announced that partial amendments to the Special Act on Children’s Dietary Life Safety Management passed the National Assembly’s Health and Welfare Committee.

The amendments include a ban on sales of food and beverages with high caffeine content, including coffee.

The revised bill could come into effect as early as July if approved by the Legislation and Judiciary Committee.
