2008_09_shaq.jpgMayor Bloomberg has enacted all kinds of measures to save us from our unhealthy habits. To announce his newest initiative, he enlisted some unusual (read awesome) help: "Michael R. Bloomberg and NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal today announced the launch of the City’s first formal food standards, ensuring that the 225 million snacks and meals served annually by City agencies are healthier...The standards require City agencies to serve only healthier beverages such as skim or 1 percent milk (with exceptions for babies), phase out deep frying, include two servings of fruits and vegetables in every lunch and dinner, lower salt content and increase the amount of fiber in meals."
