Way Beyond Weight →

This 80-minute, incredibly well-produced documentary gives us a personal look into the catastrophic impact that junk food corporations and other sugary products have on Brazilian youth, where 33% of all children are overweight or obese.

The key problem is demonstrated by frequent interviews of both children and their parents: they are mostly unaware of just how much sugar is contained in innocently packaged snacks that big brands market to kids.

Unfortunately, education alone is not a solution as long as poverty rate remains high and junk foods are cheaper than vegetables.
