  • Overview

    The "Fizzy's Lunch Lab" lesson plan and related videos provide an informative overview of food and nutrition topics and emphasize a positive change in the current state of childhood nutrition by promoting a balanced food pyramid. Using these materials, students will be able to connect foods on the school lunch menu with the food groups pyramid as well as identify food as a source of energy and growth for a healthy body.
  • Breakfast Boost

    We learn why breakfast is the most important meal of the day after Fizzy oversleeps for the mayor's inspection and frantically rushes to get the Lunch Lab ready without having eaten breakfast.
