No, we're not telling kids their heads are fat. In his humorous documentary Fat Head, filmmaker Tom Naughton demonstrated that much of the official advice about healthy eating is wrong - so wrong that it's created a record number of kids who are overweight, can't concentrate in school, and have health problems kids should never experience. Many fans of the film (who call themselves "fat heads") have shared the same thought with Naughton: I'm glad I finally lost weight and got healthy. But I wish someone had explained all this to me when I was a kid. My whole life would have been different.

Fat Head Kids explains what kids need to know about diet and health by taking them on a journey aboard a biological starship. By seeing how the crew members are programmed to respond to foods, kids learn what makes us fat (and no, it's not just about calories), how bad food makes "boy boobs," why food sets our mood, and why industrial food causes health problems ranging from diabetes to ADHD. Finally, kids learn how their biological starship was programmed to thrive on the Planet of Real Foods.

Review quote

"A great resource for any adolescent (or 40-year-old, for that matter) struggling with weight or body image issues. A funny and entertaining treatment of a serious topic. The Naughtons deliver the latest in health science in a unique way that entertains as well as informs, with a captivating story punctuated with brilliant cartoon illustrations. Should be mandatory reading in every 6th grade class."
- Mark Sisson, author of The New Primal Blueprint and publisher of Marksdailyapple.com

"We could debate what is the single most important element of raising kids, but I doubt anyone would argue that feeding our kids well is (or should be) near the top of the list. But what does "feed our kids well" really mean? In Fat Head Kids, Tom Naughton explores this touchy subject, and what he has to share will likely surprise but also inspire you."
- Robb Wolf, New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Solution

"Are you a kid (of any age) who'd like to journey through the galaxy of food, to find the planet of good health and an attractive body? Fat Head Naughton - oops, I mean Tom - is the pilot you need. Strap yourself in for a voyage of learning and fun!"
- Paul Jaminet, author of Perfect Health Diet
