To say that Chefs A'Field is low key is an understatement (it is PBS, after all), and it isn't likely to have viewers leaping out of their chairs in excitement. But it may well inspire your kids' interest in gardening or cooking as they see how much fun the kids on the show have selecting produce and working in the kitchen. It's even better when the focus is on some of their favorite foods, like fresh strawberries served with homemade scones and whipped cream. Though well-suited for family viewing, Chefs A'Field: Kids on the Farm will probably bore older grade-schoolers who already know the basics of plant biology, but for the 5- to 8-year-old crowd, it's an intriguing glimpse into a process they likely take for granted.

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.
