The New York City Health Board passed a rule on Thursday banning supersized sugary drinks with an eight to zero vote.
The new regulation will start six months from today with a limit on 16 ounce cups and bottles of sugary beverages.
The limit will cover stadiums, theaters, cafeterias and fast food joints.
but will not cover beverages sold in grocery stores or convenience stores.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg proposed the regulation last spring which was approved by a panel of experts after several months of review.
