A Newton alderman said she will propose a trans fat ban in the city similar to one already enacted in Brookline.
Ward 6 At-large Alderman Victoria Danberg said the ban would not apply to any food packaged outside Newton and brought into the city. "You could still indulge in Twinkies to your heart's content," she said this week.
The legislature is currently considering a statewide ban on trans fats, but "it will probably be quite some time before anything is passed," Danberg said in an e-mail asking other board members for their support.
