|Reviewers Comments: ||The Nutrition Detectives video focuses on "misleading" food packages and how food companies may promote a food item as being "healthy" when it really is not. Children are educated through a classroom style teaching that includes interactive games, animation and activities. It does not promote any specific foods or brands.
The video is broken into 5 chapters:
2."Super Market Spy Kids"- involves reading nutrition facts label to get correct nutritional information of a food.
3."The five nutrition clues"- includes clues to help guide the audience in making healthy food choices.
4."Our Nutrition Safari"- an interactive activity that deals with nutrition packages and determining the nutritional content.
5. "Playing with our Food"- an interactive activity that involves separating food items into a "Bad Pile" and a "Good Pile."
This DVD also includes a question and answer session with a parent and an educator, where the creator, Dr. Katz, answers how to incorporate this video into an already busy curriculum, how to get the parents involved and the importance of showing this video.
