Exclusive Clip From Childhood Obesity Documentary 'Bite Size' (Now on VOD)

Here’s an exclusive clip from a new documentary titled “Bite Size,” which tackles the epidemic known as childhood obesity in the USA. Taking a more refreshingly optimistic approach to the matter, the documentary highlights 4 inspiring stores of children from diverse backgrounds, fighting for their health, a day at a time, changing their lives, as well as the people around them (families and teachers).

Here’s the official synopsis: America’s battle against childhood obesity is an issue too big for many to fully comprehend. With 1 in 3 children overweight, the epidemic is sweeping our nation at an unforgiving rate. But in spite of these odds, Bite Size showcases the stories of four inspiring kids from diverse backgrounds who are fighting for their health one day at a time. Proving that it’s not just about the number on a scale, what really matters is learning what keeps you active and makes you happy. 

The film is directed Corbin Billings, and, via BOND/360 (the film strategy and distribution company), is currently available exclusively on Vimeo On Demand and bitesizemovie.com. Starting March 24, it will also become available on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Instant Video, VUDU, and DVD.
