Eat Smart for a Great Start Challenge

Explore Protein with Professor Fizzy

Fizzy's Lunch LabWelcome, I’m Professor Fizzy, the host of “Fizzy’s Lunch Lab” on PBS KIDS Go! In my lab we mix up exciting and enticing new recipes with my extraordinary knowledge of nutrition. Of course, I don’t do it all alone, and today, I’m happy to introduce you to my friend Sully the Cell, the host of Sully’s Guide to the Human Body. On “Fizzy’s Lunch Lab,” Sully takes us on trips through the human body to see up close what different parts of the body need to be strong and healthy. As you’ll see in Sully’s interviews—like this one with Humorous Bone—it takes special kinds of foods to make our bodies strong! Milk and dairy with calcium are good for our bones, spinach or meats with iron help our blood, protein enriches our muscles and tissues.

Next time you’re in the grocery store, you can help your child explore proteins (or important vitamins and minerals) by checking out the food labels on items you buy. Compare the labels and compare how many grams of protein per serving each product contains. Which has more? Which has less? What other important vitamins and minerals do the foods you’re buying have? Which foods in your basket have the most protein?

Wait a minute, do I smell something? That better not be my protein-packed power omelets burning! Well, I’m off, but don’t forget to learn more by visiting Fizzy’s Lunch Lab at PBS KIDS Go!
