    Love it. I hadn’t thought about the fat-sugar combination in that way.

    It’s too bad Youtube comments have to be disabled, but I know the commentary there isn’t exactly enlightening conversation. It could have been a vehicle for some kids to solve their health problems.

    Too many trolls show up on YouTube, yes.

    Show business is tough.

    Great line to close it out.

    She was annoyed that it took her more than five seconds to memorize one of her lines.

    That was awesome. I wouldn’t consider it just for kids – kinda like Toy Story. I am proud of you girls.

    SO GREAT! And to heck with the kids! I’m sending this to all the ADULTS I know who need it spelled out for them this clearly and succinctly.

    (Okay, my kids get to/need to watch it too, but it’s the adults who need to hear it even LOUDER….)

    Fave lines:
    “Alana, there’s only supposed to be one nucleus in a cell.”
    “Oh. I didn’t know that.”

    Keep up the great work Little Naughtons and Big Naughtons!

    I will as long as they’re up for it.

    Feaken adorable!

    Now, if two young girls can understand that it’s the sugar and not the fat in those foods that are making you fat, why can’t grownups?

    Our girls had the advantage of hearing Mom and Dad talk about the subject rather a lot.

    You know muscle cells are multinucleated (have multiple nuclei), there may be a few other types as well but I can’t remember. 🙂

    Good job anyway.

    ARGH! Okay, we’ll just pretend Sara didn’t know that.

    Thanks for another wonderful episode. You better believe I pulled my daughter into the den so she could watch this one with me, too. Her response: “Is there a subscribe button? I want to subscribe!” I had to assure her that I was already subscribed so as soon as a new episode was uploaded, I’d know.

    I shared on the Facebook page that my daughter is a tad older than your girls (she’s 11, soon to be 12). However, the episodes really help her articulate why we eat the way we do so that when friends and schoolmates ask (and they *always* ask), she can give the cliff notes version (because let’s face it – in a instant-gratification-world-meets-children-attention-spans, short and sweet is all they have time for. You said it yourself – your own daughter was frustrated that it took time to memorize the script)

    I’m happy to hear she asked to subscribe. That’s exactly what we’re hoping for: a following among other kids.

      And by muscle cells I mean skeletal muscle cells (and maybe some rare types of cardiac muscle).

      I just remembered there are also multinucleated giant cells.

      As you can see, the are very few multinuclear cell types.

    I love it! Your kids are naturals in front of the camera and are the best testimony I have seen for the low carb low sugar diet. I first heard them on Low Carb Conversations and thought they were terrific, great to see them live!

    Wonderful! Your girls are naturals! I’ve noticed adults have a very hard time seeing the real facts about nutrition because the wrong “facts” have banged into their heads for so many years. Fat Head Kids Club is a great way to give kids the real facts before the bad science is drummed into their heads so much they can no longer tell fact from fiction. Bravo!

    That’s exactly what we’re hoping.

    Was that “megaphone” a ShopVac accessory? Very good performances and content.

    Yeah, I think it was. We didn’t have a megaphone in the props department. Chareva improvised.

    Adorable, well-educated little girls! I love it!

    And it’s obvious they put this together. They got some help from mom and dad, but mom and dad didn’t force them to do this or put words in their mouths.

    Sure, they get lots of help from us, but they’re enthusiastic about the project.

    Bravo!Outstanding presenters, excellent animations, clear message and you can’t O.D the Fathead song. Kudos to the Naughton Family…or Bacons if you’d prefer. Thank you so much, I only wish I’d seen this a few decades ago.

    I wish I’d known this stuff 40 years ago.

    My son is very interested in this, being 8 years old. He has watched FATHEAD (10x because he ‘hates’ the ‘GUY FROM CSPI’), but he knows he has been told conflicting information. He doesn’t know what to believe when he sees me, eating fat and ‘getting lean’ as he says, and then he see’s his father’s wife who starves, eats low fat and works out constantly, but loses weight. He’s confused as to what is ‘right’. So the fact that your girls are his age and doing this really helps point him in the right direction…slowly but surely. So…. will there be t-shirts available so that my son can join the ‘Fat Head Kids Club’?????? Membership card as well???? 🙂

    Tell your son that some people do indeed lose weight by starving and working out constantly … but is that a good way to live?

    I’ll talk to the producer about Fat Head Kids’ Club memberships.

      The issue isn’t with her working out. It’s the starvation. My friend has a 44 year old woman on a weight training program, no cardio (treadmill). In one year’s time, she has lost 50 lbs. She’s added quality muscle, eating a proper diet, and still looks like a woman with a shapely, feminine physique , proving to the fact that women can lift with heavy resistance, lose the body fat and not get the muscularity of men, but, the photos of the women in Strength and Health Magazines of the 1940s and 1950s proved that point 60 years ago! (Abbey “Pudgy” Stockton was a raving beauty of the times)

    Brilliant! I know this is for kids, but it helped me be able to explain why suger/grains are bad in a easy, quick way. Tell your girls that are awesome and we love their show. Can’t wait to see more! ~ L

    PS: I’m going to send this to my Dad to show my sister – she’s 11. I’m sure she will love seeing kids her own age tell it like it is!

    The girls would be delighted to have adults in their audience too.
