The New York City Board of Health voted unanimously in support of the ban on large, sugary drinks at restaurants, delis and movie theaters.

You can now only order a soda as large as 16 ounces.

The plan is a marquee initiative of the Bloomberg administration, which is known for introducing ambitious – and, some say, overreaching – public health policies, including a ban on smoking in bars and the posting of calorie counts on chain restaurant menus.

The soda measure would bar the sale of sweetened drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces, smaller than the size of a common soda bottle. It would affect a range of popular sweetened beverages, including energy drinks, presweetened iced teas and common brands of nondiet soda.  nytimes

Refills anyone?
