Synopsis

With a baby on the way, filmmaker Damon Gameau has become increasingly worried about staying healthy. His main concern is the hidden sugars in foods we commonly perceive as ‘healthy’. To reveal their dangers he commits to a high-sugar-only diet, allowing the camera to document every extreme his body endures. Grappling the issue with frankness and humour - reminiscent of Super Size Me - and incorporating animation and celebrity cameos to highlight his learnings along the way, this is an engaging and pertinent film that will make you think before you eat.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
