Fish and chips banned in New Zealand booksFebruary 25th, 2008 - 2:04 pm ICT by admin
Wellington, Feb 25 (DPA) Some New Zealand publishers have banned references to fish and chips in modern children’s stories, author Don Long said Monday. “There’s quite an issue at the moment about healthy food in schools,” he told Radio New Zealand.
“Some publishers have misinterpreted sensitivity around that to put a blanket ban on any mention of things like fish and chips in resources that go out to schools.”
Long said that completely misinterpreted what the education ministry wanted, “which is for kids to seriously look at the whole issues of healthy foods and so on”.
He said it was an example of unofficial censorship in the New Zealand publishing world.
