NYC gives supersized sugary drinks two thumbs down

 
NYC’s mayor is cracking down on the sale of sugary drinks in order to help stop the spread of obesity. His idea is to ban the sale of sweetened beverages that are larger than 16 ounces anywhere but in grocery stores. Right now, the city is simply waiting for this new law to be approved by the Health Department, and it could be enacted by next March.

 

 

The question is: Why are drinks being targeted as a way to kick extra cals? Well, soda and other sweet drinks are a serious source of empty calories. There’s nothin’ nutritious about fizzy, sugary water that packs as many calories as a cookie, especially when it doesn’t make ya feel full. You may not realize it, but if you’re drinking a flavored iced coffee, for instance, you could be takin’ in hundreds of calories.

 

This ban will affect everything from flavored iced coffees to lemonade to sodas. There are a few exemptions, though. Milk-based beverages, fruit juices and alcoholic drinks will be excluded from the ban. Businesses are already thinking of ways to get around it, too, with deals like free refills or two-for-ones.

 

What’s your take, chickies? Do you think this will help people stay healthy?
