Mr. Fizzy's Lunch Lab launched by PBS (and a Twitter party)

There is a new resource that addresses what kids and families can do to make smart food choices and learn the benefits of living healthy in a fun and humorous way and it launches today! I LOVE it and guess what? It is brought to you by the fantastic folks at PBS.

The FIZZY’S LUNCH LAB Website at will feature animated shorts, fun recipes, interesting food facts, and exciting interactive games that guide children towards making smarter food choices.

From their press release:
“By creating fun, animated personalities, our hope is to keep families entertained, engaged, and interested in healthy living. When was the last time you received your recipe instructions from a bellowing measuring-cup drill-sergeant?”

“At PBS KIDS, we focus on guiding children to adopt healthy habits through our positive role models, great storytelling and engaging games. FIZZY’S LUNCH LAB is a perfect addition to our menu – it is interactive content that empowers children to make the right choices and advance their knowledge about healthy eating and exercise,”
Professor Fizzy and his friends work together to fight obesity while learning about the human body, and eating delicious food. The educational goal is to provide an informative overview of food and nutrition topics with an emphasis on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Most researchers agree that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is the key to healthy nutrition, avoidance of obesity, and disease prevention.

Twitter party this Tuesday night!

The topic is: Healthy Eating & Cooking With Kids Who-hoot! (Can you tell I am happy?)

My kids will love this. They are very much into cooking right now. And I applaud PBS for their effort. Our kids need to learn the importance of nutrition, and what real food looks like (hard to do when you don't know how to cook).

This is really cool! We've been on flu lockdown for 10 days, but are back at it now. What a great concept!
