Boston Bans Sugary Drinks

An executive order signed by the city’s mayor bans the sale of sugary drinks on city property.

Boston Mayor Tom Menino has banned sugary drinks in Boston proper, affecting concession stands, vending machines, and cafeterias, as well as events where city dollars are used to purchase food and beverages. The executive order also organizes drinks into three categories: red (banned beverages such as non-diet sodas and energy drinks), yellow (beverages that should only be consumed occasionally, including diet sodas and sweetened soymilk), and green (those that can still be sold, such as bottled water and unsweetened soymilk). The hope is that the beverage ban will help the citizens of Boston make easier, healthier beverage choices.
