I think it's stupid - but I shouldn't say that until I watch it. Maybe just the title is stupid and the show will be very informative. I hope so.

Saw the trailer ad on TV for this. Yet another attempt to put fear in the hearts of insecure American parents about how they are screwing up the raising of their children.

If you watch it (I won't), let me know if the "experts" they put on include Marion Nestle and/or anybody from CSPI (Concerned Scientists for the Public Interest). These people have serious agendas.

If you look toward the top of this page that you are looking at, click on the ad for the tv program, Honey we're killing the kids.

Andy, it's a show about how obese American kids are these days, and it's because (at least from the trailer I saw) that the parents are not buying the right kinds of food for them. CSPI and Ms. Nestle would have you go vegan or vegetarian. They also have financial ties to PETA.

I noticed the ad above, but didnt click on it. We all know what is best for our kids....a healthy balanced diet, and exercise, even if it includes meat, fish, and poultry. I have nothing against vegans or vegetarians, but my diet does include other things. My only gripe is that fresh fruit and veggies cost so much! If we are suppose to eat healthy, then drop the price so we can afford it, and raise the cost of junk/processed foods! Funny how that works huh? And forget organic foods, they cost even more. Not starting a war of words here, just an observation people.

Very true Amber. The fresh fruits and veggies can be pricey. It seems like people use time as an excuse for eating healthy too. Why not take a little extra time to make a decent meal for your family, sit at the dining room table all together and enjoy eachother's company instead of unhealthy tv dinners in front of the television watching a program on being obese?!
