The Bloomberg Administration is proposing a ban on large sugary drinks in restaurants, fast-food franchises, delis and sports arenas. This plan is another effort by the administration to combat obesity. Cup or bottle of any sweetened drinks more than 16 ounces is prohibited, not including diet sodas, fruit juices, dairy-based drinks and alcoholic drinks. If passed, this plan could take effect as soon as next March.
The cup/bottle sizes will be limted to less than 16 ounces, but the number of refills (if any) and the number of cups/bottles will not be limited.
