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.

We LOVE this show!!!

My kids and I watch this show ALL THE TIME. Even if there are cartoons that they would normally watch, they tell me to stay on this. Alton Brown is hilarious and his demonstrations make things normally college-level completely easy for my 6 year old to understand.

This is a good show that is entertaining as well as educational. The recipes are easy to follow, they taste great, and you learn a thing or two about the science and history of the food. I would say it's appropriate for any age. The website says that there is too much alcohol, but that's just because sometimes he uses alcohol to cook with. I doubt kids will want to run out and get drunk because they saw this show. I would recommend it to ANYONE!
