This new regulation is exactly why everyone is getting tired of the left's heavy-handed approach to government:

The NYC Board of Health has introduced new rules for say cares which limits the amount of juice kids can drink, and cuts "sedentary" time for kids as well.

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.

The old rules allowed babies as young as eight months to guzzle six ounces of 100% juice a day.

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.

Previously, kids could watch TV or play with devices like iPads up to 60 minutes a day.

The "sedentary time" does not include naps, or time spent reading, doing puzzles or painting.

Not all parents were thrilled with the new regulations. "It's like the big soda ban under Bloomberg!" said Brooklyn mom of two Victoria Clark,33.

She said the rules were too "strict" for her taste.

It's hard to believe this idiot thinks juice makes kids fat when they're babies. As if fat babies was a serious problem
It does seem like a solution in search of a problem to me.
I sometimes wonder how out of shape blubbery politicians can tell us that our children are too fat with a straight face.
