FIZZY’S LUNCH LAB: A Resource for Teaching Healthy Lifestyle Habits

Fizzy’s Lunch Lab is a PBS Web series featuring clips that educate kids about the importance of good nutrition, a balanced diet, and physical activity. Join Professor Fizzy and his friends in the super-charged Lunch Lab Test Kitchen, as they prepare healthy snacks, investigate the difference between good and bad food, and learn what happens once the food you eat goes into your body.

Each week, Fizzy’s Lunch Lab releases a new animated short video and a corresponding recipe for families to enjoy.  The series also has a fantastic set of lesson plans for elementary school teachers on topics like food pyramids, hydration, proteins, and carbohydrates.  Who knows, this just might be useful reminders for older kids too!

The website also features great music, kitchen safety tips, and fun printables.
