Fat Head Kids movie now available!
Tom Naughton, filmmaker of the brilliant and
hugely entertaining movie, Fat
Head, and author of the book Fat Head
Kids, is now back with the movie version
of his book: Fat Head Kids.
Tom’s special gift is to make science and
nutrition fun and interesting, the story told with
cartoon characters (all drawn by Tom’s wife,
Chareva) and plenty of funny moments—genuinely
laugh-out-loud funny moments. Because Tom spent
many years as a stand-up comedian, he knows how
to weave an entertaining story while informing
kids (and adults).
All of Tom’s creations recount his own
struggle with weight and health, at first not
understanding why he was overweight and unhealthy
despite following dietary guidelines. Once he
came to understand why the proliferation of
carbs—grains, sugars, soft drinks,
processed foods—in the diet was the
culprit, he finally lost the weight and
reversed all his health struggles. And that
ignited his mission to help educate everyone,
adults and children, on the mistakes made by
official dietary guidelines. And he does it
with humor, cartoon characters, and a
genuine understanding of the issues.
Tom also practices what he preaches. Having moved
his family from Los Angeles to a farm in Tennessee,
Tom tells me about the wonderful life his own
children enjoy among the goats and chickens,
garden, and trees, a return to a life the way
we are all supposed to be living.
If you want/need a way to educate the kids, if
you are a parent, grandparent, or schoolteacher
with a desire to get the kids to understand that
current dietary trends are disastrous and that
better answers are available, I can’t
think of a better way to inform, educate, and
laugh than with the educational tools that
Tom and his wife have created.
