Short, engaging, and visually appealing, this sweet cooking show is pitch perfect for the toddler and preschool crowds. Snacks with Susie will quickly become a trusted tool for parents who need help keeping their young children busy. Not only will it engage young children both in front of the TV and trying out the recipes later in the kitchen, it'll also teach them a lot of valuable lessons. Susie always washes her hands, practices kitchen safety, and helps to clean up. Even more important is her attitude toward the food she's making.

The cheerful host is always willing to try new foods, often engaging in mini taste tests with multiple options for her recipes. She sometimes shares the positive effects of foods -- "This has healthy fats that are good for your brain" -- and when she doesn't like something she simply moves on to the next. She also engages with the foods using all of her senses: Young viewers see her smell, taste, and play with her ingredients; painting faces on turtles made from grapes or energetically shaking a jar to make her own whipped cream. Parents of extremely picky eaters will recognize that this is what food therapists try to foster most; the earlier you can get your child doing these things the better. The show also cleverly incorporates learning into the fun. Susie often identifies shapes and colors, counts, and even throws in a few words from other languages. This is a show that parents can always feel good about turning on for their kids, just as long as they're prepared to spend some time in the kitchen once it's over!

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.
