The New York City Board of Health has some new rules for daycare centers. Among those rules are limitations on the amount of juice each child can have in one day (imagine poor kids crawling over to the refrigerator with the shakes because they are jonesin’ for some Sunny D).
Good thing the NYC Board of Health stepped in. You know, for the children and all.
Under the new rules, day cares can only give 100 percent juice to children 2 years and older and it can only be up to 4 ounces a day. The old rules allowed babies as young as 8 months to drink up to 6 ounces of juice a day.

“I mean, I’m flashing back to the days when we had the presidential fitness award and they would weigh us all in school,” she continued. “It’s pretty traumatizing, especially if you’re the fat kid.”
