Kota Kemuning,: What did the children do during NO TV WEEK when they were not watching television?
Most had gone to the playground. Others had spent more time chatting or playing games with their brothers or sisters or even their parents. Some had spent more time reading or done some coloring or drawing or even helped to wash their family dog. Yet others had helped their moms fold clothes, cook or even wash up.

These were some of the reports from the 5 and 6 year old from the Kota Kemuning Kinderland Kindergarten.  On the 21 April 2011, each 5 and 6 year old at Kinderlands, was told not to watch television during the whole week that is until the 27 April, and to record in a report card, what they did instead of watching television.  On the 27 April, the last day of the Campaign, they presented their reports.

Regulators are asking food makers and restaurant companies to make a choice: make your products healthier or stop advertising them to youngsters.
