Government micro managing people's behavior: NYC telling day care centers whether they can give children juice and how long children can sit for

No juice to children under age 2?  Kids not allowed to sit for more than 30 minutes?  Seriously?  From the New York Daily News:

In a pint-sized version of ex-Mayor Michael Bloomberg's attempt to ban super-sized sugary drinks, the city's Board of Health on Monday announced dramatically stricter rules for all licensed city day cares, including a limit on how much juice kids can drink.
Under the new rules, designed to try to cut obesity rates, children must be at least 2 years old before they can take their first sip of juice at day care, and they are only allowed four ounces a day.
Only 100% juice is allowed.
The old rules allowed babies as young as eight months to guzzle six ounces of 100% juice a day. 
Other new rules restrict kids' "sedentary time" to less than 30 minutes a day down from 60 minutes a day currently  and only one half-hour of screen time a week. . . .
