A city lawmaker wants to warn New Yorkers about foods and drinks high in sugar.
The New York Post reports that Council Majority Leader Keith Powers is introducing a bill that would require sugar warnings on menus at chain restaurants that have at least 15 locations in the city. The warnings would apply to foods and drinks that have at least 50 grams of added sugar.
“We have to start taking clear measures to make sure that New Yorkers are informed,” Powers said.
The warnings would be similar to the one for sodium that’s already on menus in the city.
