Last fall, New York City banned the sale of extra-large servings of pop and other sugary drinks in restaurants and movie theatres.
They did it to help fight the problem of obesity in the city.
The ban, which is set to begin on March 12, 2013, was proposed by New York City’s mayor, Michael Bloomberg, and approved by the New York City Board of Health in September 2012.
Under the new rule, businesses that have food-service licences – such as restaurants, theatres, delis, fast-food places, hot dog stands and sports stadiums – would not be allowed to sell pop in containers larger than 16 ounces.
People would still be able to buy supersized drinks at convenience stores, vending machines and some newsstands.
