Bite Size

Runtime: 89m 50s | Release date: 2014

America’s battle against childhood obesity is an issue too big for many to fully comprehend. With one in three children overweight, this epidemic is sweeping our nation at an unforgiving rate. But in spite of these odds, "Bite Size" showcases the stories of four inspiring kids from diverse backgrounds who are fighting for their health one day at a time - proving that it’s not just about the number on a scale. What really matters is learning what keeps you active and makes you happy.

Wow, this film was really well done. The determination of some of these children was amazing and as moy said toward the end "parents can learn from their kids sometimes too!". What a different life it seems to be for many in the U.S.... my experience and my child's experience with food, exercise and gaming is worlds apart. I literally have to ask my 11 year old boy to come in off the trampoline or the skate park etc as he wears himself out from hours & hours of fun and activity.

Great film. I watched it with my 10yr old Son, he actually cried when he saw the boy fall when he was trying g to keep up with the other kids running. He said he couldn’t watch it all because it was too sad. The thing that really stood out for me was that the parents really didn’t seem to understand how they had influenced their kids lifestyles. Very sad that they seemed to be shaming the kids for living the lifestyles that they had been taught by them, the parents who are saying that the kids need to be healthier.

Thanks for sharing, Liz! The movie is emotionally intense :) but we really need to get the parents educated on the importance of teaching their kids healthy eating and exercise from an early age. ~ Jasmin

Right? Way too much "they should be responsible for themselves" and not enough parenting! We teach them to walk, how to talk, and then what? Our job is done and they just miraculous have all the answers? At what point did (some) of these parents decide that their job was done? Good enough doesn't equal good. Very frustrating to watch but also important for people to see what some kids have stacked against them.

Excellent film! So sad to see so many young kids having such problems and how long it takes parents to realize how much what they do affect their kids. I think that if you are going to make a change, you have to start educating the parents.

Thanks for the feedback, Iris! Parents, teachers, caregivers, and children will learn a lot from the film which showed kids who want to be healthy - who need compassion and respect for people who struggle with being overweight. ~ Jasmin

These kids need urgently, a copy of Joel Fuhrman's excellent new book: Fast Food Genocide and tell them to stick with reading it even if they don't fully understand it all at first reading. The answers are right here in this book - it's not going to be easy for them because the odds have been stacked so heavily against them, but only with excellent knowledge, good scientific truth and unbiased education can you turn health around. This book will help them do just that.

This film reinforces the notion that all kids need strong role models and mentors in order to develop life skills.

i found it frustrating just how long it took parents and families to realize that lifestyle change is needed for so very many of us and that we need to support our loved ones in any goal or endeavour. we need to practice our beliefs and be a part of the change....we need to awaken
this film depicts our reality!
