Kids React to Epic Meal Time: Video

Turn on the television and you'll see show after show about childhood obesity. A lot of these news programs, documentaries, and talk shows blame television commercials aimed at kids that sell fast food, sugary cereals, and other crap.

But what they don't point out is that television is also a powerful medium that can do good. Case in point: this video of kids reacting to Epic Meal In it, kids are asked to watch an Epic Meal Time video (Epic Cheeseburger) and then talk about it. What do the kids think?

Pretty much that it's disgusting to consume mass quantities. One little girl even wants the Epic Meal Time guys to go veg! There's hope for the next generation, after all.
