It's not bad but the way it's presented makes me think it's for extra stupid people or children. Also my disc didn't want to play properly. It's worth a watch but eh, kinda corny.

Indeed it does a great job of showing what goes into modern "food" along with clear demonstrations on how eating healthy is not necessarily more expensive.

Perfect for any kids 10 years and older, who've started buying their own things. Does a great job in showing how processing of base ingredients increases the price of food. Mind you, I won't be making my own taco shells anytime soon, so I also like how it states that you should try and figure which foods are worth the elevated costs by making the foods for a week.

Despite high-school-esque production value, a surprisingly interesting and concise delivery of information. Better than comparable full-length features on the same topic.
