Don't miss the upcoming 40th year anniversary celebration of Sesame Street -- November 10, 2009!
Over the years and several generations, Sesame Street has become a household name particularly in those with young ones. It has brought many good things to kids, particularly in the language and counting education, even adding in Spanish words on a regular basis.
In 2005, Sesame Street " takes on obesity and a healthy diet", joining the anti-obesity forces in starting to teach viewers of all ages about the importance of eating your fruits and vegetables, of having a balanced diet and how to get more active. Even Cookie Monster has learned a thing or two regarding healthy habits as noted by the words of one of the show's nutrition-oriented songs " A cookie is a sometime food".
In 2009, it is reported that First lady Michelle Obama will be appearing on the first episode of the 40th season. She will be talking about the dangers of childhood obesity while including the importance of eating a healthy diet, exercising and planting a garden with Elmo!
