France has introduced a tomato ketchup ban for primary schools. Children are only allowed to have the sauce once a week with fries, according to The Daily Telegraph. The new restriction was enforced due to concerns that children would not appreciate French food. Christophe Hebert, the man responsible for the ban, said: We have to ensure that children become familiar with French recipes so that they can hand them down to the following generation. Children have a tendency to use them to mask the taste of whatever they are eating. Some 21 tonnes of ketchup and mustard were stolen in Austria a few months ago. DS
