This movie is a Wake Up Call to parents. An absolute MUST SEE film. Fed Up was VERY well done and I don’t think I’ll ever look at food the same way again. It hits theaters this Friday May 9th from Executive producers Katie Couric and Laurie David, the genius behind an Inconvenient Truth.
I learned so much in this film and have been telling everyone about it since I screened it earlier this week. The movie dives into the obesity epidemic and the root causes of it all. It seems to be a giant national political problem thanks to the added sugar in 80% of our food products. Change needs to happen as we are a nation addicted to sugar – which is actually 8 x more addictive than cocaine.
Sharing a shocking sugar comparison ….more sugar in our pasta sauce than candy. Yikes!
I’m saddened by all of it and as a parent feel I’ve already set my healthy lean children who are indeed active and fit – onto the wrong track due to the food supply in America. I try to get my family to eat right, but after watching Fed Up, I now see that even all our organic choices have so much sugar in them. It’s time to get back to real food and as a nation try to solve this problem – can we create convenient foods that don’t have added sugar? Can we start showing the % daily recommended sugar on our food labeling?
We plan as a family to take the 10 day Challenge to avoid sugar for 10 days. It will be difficult but we will do our best. Let’s hope this movie triggers political change in food labeling and raises awareness to the sugar and obesity crisis in America.
