NYC to require excessive sugar food and drink warnings
New York City is requiring some restaurants to post excessive sugar warnings on menus.
Mayor Eric Adams signed a bill Friday that requires chain restaurants with 15 or more locations in New York City to post a warning label next to menu items that contain more than a days worth of FDA recommended added sugar levels. Dr. DeAnna Nara with Center for Science In the Public Interest believes this will help New Yorkers make better informed decisions.
"We know these are going to help push companies and fast food chains and other chain restaurants to reformulate their recipes to actually avoid the warnings.
The law goes into effect in mid June of next year.
