Friday round-up

Our first story is on childhood obesity, which has become an issue for many countries. In Britain, it's an interesting dilemma as a new rule stipulates that donkey riders at the beach�a frequent activity for many families at the British beaches�cannot weigh more than about 120 pounds. The rule applies to any rider, including kids. Story #2 is about a school in New Zealand which banned birthday cakes in class, responding to guidelines about overeating. This week, kids in Northern Ireland are getting to know two new children, a Northern Ireland version of Sesame Street that is, which plans to use Sesame Street to bridge divides between Catholics and Protestants. The show is called Sesame Tree in Northern Ireland.
