Is It Any Good?

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

The series highlights cooking as a way for generations of family members to connect with one another. It also emphasizes the way that cooking can help mothers bond with their daughters, even after they've reached adulthood and have children of their own. But by focusing just on mothers and daughters in the kitchen, Mom's Cooking supports the the idea that cooking is a "woman's job." It also ignores the fact that sons can benefit from sharing a similar experience with their moms (or dads!), and that all kids can benefit from preparing meals with their parents, regardless of gender. While these messages can be problematic, the show's overall focus on family and tradition is positive. Young tweens may not be particularly drawn to the show, but older viewers may find the recipes, if not the stories, interesting.

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.
