Inhabitat reports on this new initiative to promote healthy eating:

The New York City Department of Health is practicing what they preach. The DOH has announced new rules of conduct and diet for the workplace, in order to effectively restrict and reduce high fat and sugary food consumption. The guidelines came in the form of a department wide distributed brochure, and not only include rules for diet, but office work ethics as well. These new measures come in light of the city’s recent campaigning to encourage people to switch to a healthier diet. Under the new rules, employees are not allowed to eat fried food  in the office, muffins and bagels must be mini-sized, and cookies and cake can’t appear at the same time.
