First salt, now SUGAR warnings coming to NYC menus…

NEW YORK — New York City chain restaurants are already required to indicate high salt levels. Soon they could be required to warn customers about high sugar content in menu items.

The city council voted 43–5 on Wednesday to require warning notices next to menu items and on signs for items that contain high amounts of added sugar. The bill now goes to the mayor for his signature.
