The CAS also approved the rejection of three amendments offered by Senator Romero Juca (PMDB-RR), which sought only to restrict, rather than prohibit the marketing of these products in school canteens.

Another amendment proposed by Senator Jucá also rejected by the committee, provided that the definition of what constitutes low nutritional drinks and foods with high amounts of sugar, saturated fat, trans fat or sodium would be made on the basis of criteria and scientifically proven validated by international health protection.
