Answered By: 
The Mayor

None of the 59 schools which have achieved a Healthy Schools London bronze award sell sugary drinks and snacks.

Please see my response to MQ 2646/2013 which sets out why it is not possible for any school selling sugary drinks and snacks to achieve a Healthy Schools London Award.
