Food Day 2013: From Supersize to Human-size: Shrinking Sugary Drink Portions - Join New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas A. Farley and his colleagues from the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to learn how to reshape sugary drink portion size norms in your community. In September 2012, the New York City Board of Health successfully passed a proposal to set a maximum size for sugary drinks of no more than 16 ounces. The regulation will take effect in March 2013 and will apply to all restaurants, fast-food joints, delis, movie theaters, sports stadiums, and food carts in NYC. This webinar will describe the rationale for the policy; decisions that influenced the policy; challenges and implications faced by the department; and advice for how to reduce sugary drink consumption in your community.
