Cookie Cutting on Sesame Street!
Word on the street (well, Sesame Street) is that Cookie Monster is going healthy. Seems that since one of the new focuses of the popular children's show will be on teaching kids to eat better, Cookie Monster's cookie intake will be severely reduced. He won't actually be counting points or carbs, but he'll definitely be learning about moderation and will even perform a song called "A Cookie is a Sometimes Food." While we're extremely concerned about the growing childhood obesity problem in this country, we're not quite sure how we feel about Cookie Monster's curbed cookie-munching.
FYI...The FDA Wants to Hear From Y-O-U!
If you're as fed up as we are with ridiculously unfair food labeling, here's your big chance to speak up. Our biggest gripe is with unrealistic serving sizes and misleading nutritionals. If you agree that there simply aren't 11 servings in that tiny box of cereal, 2 servings in that silly little can of soup, or that you shouldn't have to be a math whiz to figure out how many calories or fat grams you're eating in one sitting, DEMAND that the FDA fix this problem. Send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org and reference Docket No. 2004N-0456. C'mon, roll up your sleeves and kick some unrealistic serving size butt! Grrrrrrr...
