Welcome to Fizzy’s Lunch Lab, a kitchen where Professor Fizzy and his friends cook up delicious, nutritious meals while learning the science behind healthy foods. A cooking showdown between Professor Fizzy and his nemesis, Fast Food Freddy, owner of Greasy World, is about to begin. The challenge: cook the most delicious food as decided by three kid judges. If Fizzy wins, Freddy will have to serve Fizzy’s healthy meal at his restaurant for a month. Both teams prepare their meals — Fizzy a tasty, balanced one and Freddy a fatty, greasy one. While the cooking battle heats up, readers will learn the components of a balanced plate through recipes, cooking tips, shopping ideas, and more.

In this hybrid story/cookbook, we find the characters from the PBS show involved in a competition. Fizzy is sure that Avril and Henry would prefer to have a fresh, tasty and wholesome meal, whereas Fast Food Freddy is sure that they would prefer something deep fried (and possibly on a stick). The two cooks come up with a menu, complete with recipes for the healthy food, and cook the meals, taking time to explain things like "eating the rainbow", which means getting a variety of colors from fruits and vegetables, NOT eating multicolored jelly beans. There's good information about the role of different kinds of food in a healthy diet, fun facts, amusing pictures, and other information about foods and choices that make up a healthy diet.

This is based on a PBS web series by the same name, which also has games, recipes, and other internet content.
