First Lady Applauds NYC Plan To Ban Sugary Drinks [View all]

(06-05) 11:53 PDT WASHINGTON (AP) --

First lady Michelle Obama says banning big servings of sugary drinks isn't anything she'd want to do at the federal level but she applauded New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Tuesday for proposing to do just that at city eateries.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Mrs. Obama said there's no "one-size-fits-all" solution for the country's health challenges. But she said she "applauds anyone who's stepping up to think about what changes work in their communities," and she's citing New York as one example.
