So what does this mean for future takeovers? And has the swift reversal hurt Kraft Heinz? Share Radio's Ed Bowsher spoke to Thomas Buckley, reporter at Bloomberg, for what's next for both companies.

Women and Money: Children's car seats
In less than two weeks, on March 1st, the rules on child car seats change. You won't be able to buy a backless booster seat unless your child is at least 125cm tall or weighs at least 22 kg (around three and a half stone). Buying a car seat for your child - and buying things like a buggy or pushchair - can also be something of a minefield. Sarah Pennells was joined in the studio by freelance personal finance journalist Donna Ferguson, Anne-Marie O'Leary, Editor-in-Chief of Netmums and Kevin Clinton, Head of Road Safety at ROSPA.

Would you accept a day off from work...if you're tired?
It's safe to say that many of us would love the luxury of a day off work every now and then. But how would you feel if your employer offered you a wellbeing day, effectively allowing you to call in sick...with tiredness? This is a measure being proposed by think tank, the Institute of Public Policy Research, or IPPR, who believe employers should be looking more into their employee's wellbeing. Share Radio's Sara Macham spoke to Joe Dromey, one of the authors of the report, about how this would reduce the number of people receiving long-term sickness benefit.
