We’ve been having such a good time watching Great British Bake Off with the kids. Our 3 year old is scared even by most kids shows these days, so it’s been really nice to find something that is genuinely enjoyable for all four of us, and doesn’t give anyone nightmares. I think it’s great for the kids (and us) to see adults, from all kinds of different backgrounds, caring about and working hard on creative projects, celebrating successes and working through failures, supporting each other, and having a good time! I think we’ve all been inspired to do more cooking and baking too! (So far we’ve watched the 2018 and 2017 seasons, so I can’t vouch for any of the seasons before that. One episode was flagged by Channel 4 as not suitable for kids, so we haven’t watched that!)
Child rating: 10/10
Parent rating: 10/10
