      Schools have just 12 months to wipe their lunch menus of junk food
      under a new pledge to improve nutritional standards. But what exactly
      is junk food? A controversial new book argues there is no such thing.
      No foods are intrinsically bad, it says.

      Ruth Kelly, the secretary of state for education, has launched
      something of a jihad against junk food.

      At the Labour Party conference last week she made an impassioned
      promise that foods high in fat, salt or sugar will be taken off the
      menus and removed from vending machines in schools across England.

      "The scandal of junk food served every day in school canteens must
      end," said Ms Kelly, to rapturous applause from fellow Labour
      delegates. "We will ban poor quality processed bangers and burgers
      being served in schools from next September."
