Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say: Not yet rated

If your kids like the celebrities from the Disney Channel, this just may be the place to convince them to eat more fruits and vegetables, get more exercise, and make healthier choices in daily life. The video styles are very similar to the Disney Channel "backstage" videos, including one where the Disney actors mingle with the First Lady. Most of the recipes are easy for kids to replicate with ingredients that won't be hard for parents to find at any well-stocked grocery store. The quizzes give good, solid information; most kids and even many adults are likely to learn something. It would be nice to see more interactivity here, such as message boards, an online food journal and exercise log for kids, or a Q&A box where kids can submit questions to a nutritionist and athletic trainer. Overall, a very palatable nutrition and exercise site for kids.

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.
