As per the regulation, a limit has been placed on the size of cups and bottles of non-diet soda, sweetened teas, and other calorie-packed beverages, up to 16-ounce size limit.

Broadway theatres, movie houses, fast-food outlets, and cafeterias at the workplace will have to comply with this ruling which does not apply to beverages sold in supermarkets and convenience stores.

The restaurant and beverage industries are peeved with this ruling and have called it an exaggerated response to tackling obesity.
