MINISTER BRUTON’S STANCE ON GREEN SCHOOLS PACK AT ODDS WITH DEPT OF HEALTHCattle, Dairy, Environment & Rural Affairs
IFA President Joe Healy said there was mounting farmer anger that Environment Minister Richard Bruton would support a call for teenagers to consume less meat and dairy products.
“This is not consistent with the dietary advice from the Department of Health. It is clear that many parents already find it challenging to ensure that their children eat a balanced diet.
This pack must be withdrawn and amended before it goes back into circulation.”
