Say goodbye to venti Frappuccinos, gallon movie theater slurpees and big sodas. The city's Board of Health approved Mayor Michael Bloombergs ban on large sugar-sweetened drinks at its monthly meeting Thursday morning. Nine members voted for it, and one abstained. Under the plan, all restaurants, fast-food joints, delis, movie theaters, sports stadiums and even food carts will be barred from selling sugar-sweetened drinks in cups larger than 16 ounces.
There's one step in the right direction.
