Black Market For Chocolate Bars And Soda

WINNIPEG - A "black market" for junk food appears to have developed at a Winnipeg school cracking down on sweet treats and soda.

Kelvin High School has removed pop, chocolate bars and cinnamon buns from its cafeteria and vending machines as part of a new Winnipeg School Division nutrition plan.

The plan is based on provincial guidelines released in 2005.

More than 70 people have joined a Facebook site called "Bring Back Sugar to Kelvin High School."

One teen says students are making money by selling goodies out of their lockers.

A spokeswoman for the division declined to comment, other than noting no one has formally complained about the shift to healthier foods.
