British Education Minister John Nash says schools have the authority to ban foods to promote healthy eating and to search students' lunches to make sure they aren't bringing those foods with them. He did say it would be good practice for the student to be present when his or her lunch is searched and for a second member of the staff to be there if anything has to be confiscated.
