I heard about this movie a couple months ago and added it to my list of movies to watch. But like usual, cheesy romantic comedies and dystopian action films took precedence and this documentary about the American food industry went on the back burner. UNTIL TODAY. *cue music evoking how intense we should all feel*
For those of you who haven’t heard of the documentary, it follows several obese children through their struggles of losing weight, while focusing on the severe issues with sugar, chemicals, processed “foods”, and large company control in the American food industry.
I found it to be an interesting watch. While I already knew a lot of the information they were giving out because of my own research and interest in the topic of nutrition, it could be eye opening information for a lot of Americans and other viewers worldwide.
The best part for me, was the call-to-actions at the end, giving clear examples of things everyone can do to improve their health, children’s health, and preventing the obesity epidemic from continuing.
