Fizzy's Lunch Lab


Nutrition concepts are not as complicated as people think! Often, families lack proper information about the basic rules to a healthy lifestyle. Fizzy’s 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 veggies are the key to healthy nutrition, avoidance of obesity, and disease prevention.

The Lunch Lab will provide practical and positive examples of healthy eating and regular exercise within the framework of an entertaining format. Our advisory board, which includes a specialist in diabetes and metabolic diseases, a university educator in the field of health education, and a team of seasoned food writers, will assure that the information provided meets scientific and educational goals.
