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.

Great, but too graphic and sophisticated for young ones

You know where meat comes from? Dead animals. And how do the animals get dead? Usually people kill them. Without thinking these facts through, I sat my 9 and 11-year-olds down to watch this, thinking they liked food and needed a wider breadth of geographical knowledge. The first episode - fat - starts off with Australian aboriginals setting fire to a piece of land so they could drag baked alive reptiles out of their holes for dinner. Cultural discussions aside, my kids were pretty freaked and wouldn't watch beyond the first episode. This show is more for adults and foodie-minded teens who can deal with the reality of where meat comes from.
