    It smacks of political correctness gone wild. However, with childhood obesity rates and "adult" onset diabeties hitting kids young, perhaps while the kids are sitting on their butts in front of the TV they'll learn something.

    And then perhaps educate the parents.

    IF they turn off the video games (whether they're the 'learning' kind or not). There's too many indoor toys anymore.



    Let the Cookie Monster have his cookies. I'll also wait for the day that Oscar the Grouch is introduced to soap, water, and a scrubbrush, if SS is hopping on the PC train.

    I also heard one school district was trying to do away with correcting papers with red ink because it provokes anxiety in children.


    The more politically correct we try to become, the crazier our society becomes.

    when my kids were toddlers, i used to sing them the cookie monster song ALL the time :Melody:

    and yes, with childhood obesity being so pervasive, i can understand sesame's point.
    yet couldn't they change the cookies to oatmeal (fiber) or peanutbutter (protein) with as little sugar as possible, or even substitues (honey)?

    why can't they keep the cookie monster song but just change the lyrics?

    Or cookies baked with apple sauce.

    "C is for carrot, that's good enough for me"

    Not for me lol. I need ranch dressing with that carrot.

    ...baked w/applesauce! what a SUPERB idea marie. you should patent that then get in touch w/the sesame street execs.
    cookie monster could still sing his song then follow it with a monologue about what he puts in his cookies....applesauce, mmmmmmm. and most kids love applesauce too.
    you go girl.
