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 show

A bit scripted, but you can tell that Shaquille's feelilngs for the kids are genuine. The kids are awesome. A good subject matter that all parents should be aware of.

It's about time

I'm glad that a star has taken issue with the fact that obesity has reached epidemic porportions and out goverment has done little to address the problem. I agree that PE should be brought back into the school system, from pre-school through 12 grade. Junk food, such as candies, cookies and sodas should be banned from all school campuses. Create healthier choices and include nutrition as a required subject in Junior high School AND High School.
