Helped by roving reporter Sarah, the Lunch Bunch investigate different types of food and explain the importance of each food group for our growth and well-being.

Feedback given from Practical Pre-School Awards 2010

"Excellent product to aid the teaching of PSHE. The children were able to relate to the characters in the programme and were keen to watch them again. They particularly enjoyed the parts on how chocolate is made. The programme encouraged reflection on what the children had seen and how they could improve their own healthy eating and lifestyle."
