Lack representation

We live in such a multicultural country, I don’t understand how producers still insist on trying to shove this “white australia” image down people’s throats. Pretty much the entire cast is white, the little Asian girl feels tokenism .

Great show It Shows 6 11 year old kids At play time

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (19 ):

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.

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.
