Every single menu in New York City could soon be getting a major overhaul if Mayor Michael Bloomberg has his way. The man behind calorie counts is set to announce a new public health initiative to battle obesity, taking aim at super-sized sugary drinks.
The New York City Health Department is launching a new campaign to show just how much sugar is in a can of soda.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture rejected a waiver request that would have allowed the city to implement the plan. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said his administration was disappointed by the feds’ decision.
By now you’ve most likely noticed the NYC Health “Pouring on the Pounds” subway posters campaigning to get people to cut down on sugary drinks.
