3 years ago



As you can see, today the Typical Student team is going to tell you about another unexpectable school bun. This time, South Korea implemented a new law. It bans selling coffee in all the schools across the country. Why? Let’s figure it out.

What Does The Ban Mean?


To make a long story short, according to the new law, primary and secondary schools must stop selling coffee and all the caffeinated drinks. Now, in South Korea schools, it’s forbidden to sell these drinks via school vending machines as well as in snack or coffee shops.

To say more, this ban includes teachers, who won’t be able to buy coffee or caffeinated drinks.

Why South Korea Bans Coffee in Schools?


The reason why South Korea bans selling coffee in school is pretty simple. This step is meant to keep local students from consuming too much caffeine. As stated by The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, the coffee ban should help students foster healthier food habits. The decision was taken after numerous cases of students consuming excess levels of caffeine during exam periods.
