The School Library Journal recently reviewed our Breakfast Because DVD and gave it a shining nutrition and health review: “This inventive take on an important issue keeps the presentation fresh and entertaining, providing a resource that will be useful in health and life skills classes,” wrote the School Library Journal reviewer.
Read the whole review below:
“A healthy amount of practical, nutritionally sound information is assembled in this engaging, lively package. A group of diverse teens present the material in creative skits that span four segments. For example, "It's the Smart Way to Start Your Day" offers facts about the importance of eating breakfast, driving home the benefits of increased energy, alertness, and metabolism. A close look at the Food Pyramid (instructors in Canada can choose an alternate segment which refers to the Canada Food Guide) provides a foundation for appealing breakfast ideas. Other topics covered include eating a healthy breakfast at fast food restaurants, how to read nutrition labels, choosing healthy breakfast cereals, vegetarian options, and foods requiring minimal preparation that can be eaten on-the-go. In a skit illustrating the importance of varied nutrients, the actors are dressed in costumes that represent various body organs (blood, bone, muscles, brain), as they lobby for a nutritious breakfast for a teenager and must do their best to cope with the deleterious effects a doughnut. This inventive take on an important issue keeps the presentation fresh and entertaining, providing a resource that will be useful in health and life skills classes.” —Meghann R.
