Canada pushes for healthy street food

Street vendors in Vancouver will have to abide by strict new healthy food regulations.

    Vancouver has become the first North American city to impose strict healthy food regulations for potential street vendors.

    In its attempt to cut down on unhealthy street food, the Canadian government is trying to lessen the number of carts selling foods that are high in sodium, fats or sugars.

    But public opinion about the move remains divided.
