Minimum alcohol drinking age: 21

Remember Mayor Bloomberg and his efforts to ban supersized sodas in NYC?

Via NY Daily News: NYC Board of Health’s new, stricter rules for day cares limit how much juice kids can drink, cut ‘sedentary’ time

The city wants to make sure day care kids get in shape — and that means more exercise and less juice.

In a pint-sized version of ex-Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s attempt to ban super-sized sugary drinks, the city’s Board of Health on Monday announced dramatically stricter rules for all licensed city day cares, including a limit on how much juice kids can drink.

Under the new rules, designed to try to cut obesity rates, children must be at least 2 years old before they can take their first sip of juice at day care, and they are only allowed four ounces a day.

Only 100% juice is allowed….

Other new rules restrict kids’ “sedentary time” to less than 30 minutes a day —down from 60 minutes a day currently — and only one half-hour of screen time a week….
