The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Little Lunch is a delightful The Office-style mockumentary series that features kids at recess talking about their lives. It's one of those shows that's entertaining for kids as well as adults. For grown-up viewers, some things haven’t changed: Kids think and play in unique ways, and this group of kids is relatable to almost everyone. The interviews with the characters during the situations are not only funny and fun to watch but can help viewers see how children think about things. While the show takes place in Australia, people from all areas can easily relate to these creative and entertaining stories.

What's the story?
LITTLE LUNCH is a The Office-style mockumentary for kids that takes place during the most important period of a child’s day: free time at school. Characters are left on their own to play and interact with one another without guidance from adults. In addition to the show's story, the series features short interviews with characters to gain insight into what they're really thinking and feeling.
Is it any good?
This delightful live-action show is vibrant and funny enough that parents will want to watch it with their kids (and maybe even sneak in an episode when they aren't even there!). Modeled after classic mockumentary formats, with interviews, asides, and a plot running through it all, Little Lunch gives young kids clear (and often hilarious) voices. It does a great job of exploring the deep well of a subject that hasn't been explored quite this way before -- the thoughts and feelings of young kids as they experience free time during their school day.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about friendship and how it's portrayed in Little Lunch. Is it scary to make new friends at school? How does recess or playtime make it easier or harder?
