Cookie Monster becomes Broccoli Monster

Oh no… The Cookie Monster will skip wonderful unhealthy cookes for broccoli and healthy vegetables… Today I read an article in Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet about poor Cookie Monster that has to eat less cookies due to the growing problems with obesity among children. Apparently 16 % of all American childen between 6 and 19 years are suffering from obesity. The Cookie Monster will teach the children watching Sesame Street that too many cookies make it difficult to learn new things and that cookies only is a “sometime food”. I think that it’s a very good initiative as children is getting fatter and fatter and need to form healthy habits at young years, but I’m still worried about the Cookie Monster… Will he really manage without cookies and will he now change his name to Broccoli Monster? And what about his wonderful cookie song, “C is for cookie”?

    I posted on this at my blog, too. You’re right, it’s a step in the right direction. And who knows, maybe they’ll come up with a new song, “K is for Kale!” :-)

    This is ridiculous. Just because irresponsible parents cant prevent their children from being fat, doesn’t mean they need to change a strongly loved character into something else. This wont help anything. People should really look at their selves as a source of an obesity issue rather than something as innocent as Sesame Street…

    more people are becoming obese these days because of too much junk food and too much sugar in snacks and fast foods. ~
