Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Super annoying

This new version of 30 minute meals is terrible. Rachael Ray always seems angry and condescending. She treats the audience as if they are stupid.
