The local series giving NZ parents a glimpse at their kids’ futures

Presented by Health Expert Dr. Louise Schofield, 3’s new local show Honey We’re Killing the Kids premieres on Tuesday, November 7th at 7:30pm on TV3

This series provides an opportunity for seven sets of parents to fast forward into their children’s futures to get a glimpse of their lives if their unhealthy parenting continues. Using state-of-the-art technology, these parents will see images of what their children will look like when they reach middle age if they continue their current unhealthy lifestyles.

Honey We’re Killing The Kids performs a series of medical, nutritional and psychological tests on each child, based on their current lifestyle. The tests have been devised by the team from Health and Human Performance.

After each of the children undergoes this series of tests, pictures of the children, their parents and their extended family will be used to get a good idea of how the children could look at the age of 40.

For many parents, the rosy future they had pictured for their children doesn’t match the image before their eyes. Often the children are found to be unhealthy, unhappy underachievers, and it seems it’s largely their parents’ fault.

Dr. Schofield works with the parents as they attempt to transform their family’s lifestyle and change the face of their children’s future. She lays down new guidelines for them to follow on everything from diet, exercise, literacy, sleep and leisure activities, with additional challenges tailored to particular families.

What effect will these changes have on the children’s futures? Find out on the new local series Honey We’re Killing The Kids, premiering Tuesday, November 7th at 7:30pm on 3.
