BEIJING — Beijing will further strengthen food safety management in schools, requesting school officials to dine with students, according to the municipal education authority.
Students in primary and middle schools and kindergartens should be accompanied by staff during each meal served at school, the Beijing Municipal Education Commission announced earlier this week.
Staff who eat with the kids are required to keep a record, find and solve the problems they find in a timely manner.
School canteens are not allowed to serve cold dishes, kidney beans or other food that are considered risky. A food tracing system will be established.
Schools are also required to be well-prepared to handle food safety incidents, make a risk list and carry out emergency drills.
