France has banned school and college cafeterias nationwide from offering tomato-based condiment such as tomato sauce with any food except for French fries. And French fries can be offered only once a week, so tomato sauce can only be consumed once a week.
The reason is to promote healthy eating and it has also been suggested that it is to protect traditional Gallic cuisine.
I have no ideas how popular tomato sauce is in cafeterias. If it was quite popular then I am guessing students will find ways around it. Small sachets can be hidden in any number of places. Consuming smuggled food, drinks and condiments is generally ‘tastier’. This ban may work in curbing consumption, or it may encourage students to find innovative ways to smuggle the sauce.
This is my personal opinion but if we ban something, it sometimes becomes more attractive to have it. If you ban something like trans fat because its considered harmful, we can live without it. But if something popular and not that bad nutritionally is banned, some people may rebel. I recall this Adam and Eve story where apparently Adam ate what he was told not to eat.
