Reviewers Comments: This curriculum has nine lessons. The lessons aim to teach students how to practice new skills, such as tasting healthy foods, washing hands, and having fun moving their bodies. They are designed to be taught by the "Show Me Chef" who can either be a hand puppet or the teacher, who dresses up as a chef. Most of the lessons feature the Show Me Chef taking the children to explore a new land (of different food groups). In other lessons, children learn about germs and proper hand washing techniques, My Plate, and brushing and flossing their teeth. Throughout the curriculum, children learn additional skills, such as number and color recognition, which are incorporated into the activities. There is also a children's book list included that encourage healthy eating. Some lessons include core reading activities, and books for use in these lessons are included with the curriculum. Multiple choice questions appropriate to kindergarten level are included, each with only two choices, for assessment purposes.
