Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Fed Up is a documentary that focuses on the harm sugar does in the body. It's chock full of statistics, historical facts and figures, research, and interviews that will teach both kids and adults about healthy eating. While there's barely anything in the way of iffy content ("damn" is used once, and plenty of brands are mentioned/shown in the discussion about diet), younger kids may find the film dense and a bit overwhelming with data -- but tweens and older will surely find meaningful take-aways, especially with help from their parents. Expect a lot of questions -- and maybe the urge to purge your pantry -- post viewing.
Kids talk about being teased for their weight.
One use of "damn."
One change -- cutting down on sugar -- can make a significant difference to your health. It's not easy, especially given that sugar is in almost everything we eat, but the documentary does provide a few tips here and there.
Many companies/brands are named (Cocoa Puffs, Special K, Nutella, Toblerone, Twix, Dove, Snickers, Pringles, Lays, Jelly Belly, Arco, Frosted Flakes, and more), but it's all within the context of talking about healthy/not-so-healthy foods.
