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.

Family friendly cooking show

Pretty decent. Our 5 year old is bored almost instantly but our 11 y/o enjoys it. Cleaner than several other cooking shows in terms of language and bad attitudes. Sets a good example of families working together and it's not overly competitive.

Fun and inspiring series to watch as a family

My 10 year old son and I are having a blast watching this series! In particular, the tension of each round of cooking within each episode, noting the family dynamics as each team of three works together, the celebration of diverse families and food and homes we see, and talking about the gorgeous dishes they are preparing. We're already talking about spending more time in the kitchen ourselves!
