Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

For foodie kids and parents, this reality competition show is a sweet and funny treat. Baking It is super positive and doesn't include any of the cut-throat antics of other competition shows. The competitors have very positive attitudes, and even the 'Opinionated Grannies' have very kind opinions about the desserts. The home bakers are super accomplished and kids will love seeing the creative process behind some really impressive treats. The first season of the show is heavily Christmas-themed, which may be less relevant to families who don't celebrate the holiday. That said, Baking It does a great job of highlighting the diverse backgrounds of the competitors and encouraging them to incorporate their own food cultures into their Christmas-y creations. Baking It is a joyful celebration of all things sweet that families can enjoy together.
