Katie Couric narrates this surprising exposé of the food industry, offering a unique take on a story that, as she recalls, began many years ago as a small sidebar about increasing obesity among Americans. Now a huge story that she and her fellow TV journalists cover constantly, Couric and filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig set out to uncover the reasons why the next generations of American kids are likely to have shorter life spans than their parents, despite media attention, the public’s fascination with appearance, and government policies to combat childhood obesity. By following the battles of three obese children to lose weight, through interviews with top experts in the field, and by using sharp examination of data gathered over the course of 30 years, “Fed Up” aims to change the way you think about sugar and the way you eat.
