 Canada Lays New Nutrition Rules for Street Food
Battered fish and chips with tartar sauce without fruits and vegetables on side will no longer be available at any of Vancouver streets, Canada.

No more hotdog vendors will be approved. The authorities will not look favorably to sell items that are high in sodium, sugar or fat. All the new street vendors will offer wholesome, nutritious food that will not cake a person's arteries or lead to a heart attack. If these vendors offer vegetables or fruits that will balance out the cholesterol-laden food items, they can get past the city's food police.

Deputy city manager, Sadhu Johnston said, "Our goal is to provide more diverse, healthier food options on the street. It's not just about providing healthy foods, it's about diversity, improved food access and affordability." Stanley Park, Spanish Banks, Locarno Beach and New Brighton Park still have fish and chips on the menu.
