The Kids Menu

With childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes hitting epidemic proportions among children, The Kids Menu focuses on connecting kids with nature to offer a potentially life-changing education on the healthful benefits of a fresh, whole foods diet.

ABOUT THE FILMMAKER

Joe Cross

Filmmaker Joe Cross created Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, a documentary that chronicled his personal transformation, which has been viewed by more than 20 million people worldwide and has attracted an online community of more than a million followers.

FILM SYNOPSIS

The Kids Menu is a feature documentary from the team that brought you Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. As filmmaker Joe Cross spent time traveling the world with his previous two films, he met thousands of people and one issue that came up again and again was what to do about the growing childhood obesity problem. In The Kids Menu, Joe meets with experts, parents, teachers and kids, coming to the realization that childhood obesity isn’t the real issue, but rather a symptom of a bigger problem: the lack of knowledge of what healthy foods are, lack of access to healthy and affordable options and the influence of negative role models—whether a parent, teacher or even a celebrity. All of this together seems to be a lot to overcome, but when empowered, kids often make the surprising choice of the healthier path.

In this inspiring and hopeful documentary, we see amazing programs in action, inspiring individuals paving the way for change, but most of all—kids taking the lead in getting healthier options on their own menu.

“I decided to find out what we can do to keep our kids healthy and fight childhood obesity.”
—Joe Cross
