  • Overview

    These "Fizzy's Lunch Lab" videos provide practical and positive examples of healthy eating with an emphasis on calories. Students learn about how calories are used in digestion to turn into energy, but consuming too many calories means this energy is stored as fat. Learn also about the importance of portion control and making low-calorie food choices.
  • Hoagie Throwdown

    Fast Food Freddy challenges Fizzy to a hoagie throwdown. Students learn how some foods are packed with more calories than the body needs, and are much harder to burn off.

  • Sully's Guide to the Human Body: Calories

    Sully the Cell has ran out of energy for his cab. Students learn how food contains calories that the digestive system breaks down and turns into energy. Students also learn that when we overeat, the body ends up with more energy than it can use, and this energy gets stored as fat.
