A snub for Julia, obese babies, liquor store smackdown and more

March 8, 2010 | 10:05 am


--Julia Child -- I mean Meryl Streep -- was snubbed. But was she robbed? Should she have won the Oscar over Sandra Bullock?

--Today, one of every three U.S. children is overweight — but it's much easier to prevent obesity than to treat it. That's why pediatric obesity experts now say intervention should begin early — very early.

--"Kings of Pastry" will have its U.S. premiere in April, and offers a mouthwatering peek into the kitchens of eminent French chefs. But others hope the film will go on to help give greater options to people with diverse learning skills.

--New York is considering allowing grocery stores to sell wine -- the money from new liquor licenses would help ease a budget crunch. But the powerful liquor store lobby has other ideas.
