Reviewers Comments: The book is divided into twelve chapters. The first three chapters provide introductory background information. The remaining chapters are divided by subject. These include Language Arts, Math, Performing Arts, Art, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, and Cafeteria. Each chapter is filled with activities, units, and subject-specific lessons on nutrition. Also, the Edible Art chapter includes many recipes.

If additional materials or supplies are required, that information is noted with "You Will Need" boxes. Resources for low-cost materials to reinforce nutrition topics are included in an appendix at the end of the book. Activities are also categorized according to level and designated as primary, intermediate, or either. Some lessons involve food preparation. Guidelines are given for these lessons in the appendix section..

A hands-on activity guide, Nutrition Fun with Brocc & Roll is also available for purchase on the web site, in addition to related copy-ready handouts to use with children, teens or adults.
