THE Education Ministry wants all schools to make sure their canteens provide a mix of halal and non-halal food suitable for children of all religions.

It made this clear yesterday, a day after news broke about a primary school which banned pupils from eating non-halal food in its canteen.

On learning of this on Monday, the ministry said that Boon Lay Garden Primary had made a mistake.
