A highly informative and practical crash-course in what different foods do to your body, and how to pick the foods that promote good health... On film she comes across like that one biology teacher in high school that everyone loved: the one who could make the complexities of science accessible to even the most clueless jocks.

Truly eye-opening because Ms. Toscano explained sugars in terms everyone could understand. I loved the visuals that reinforced the concepts. Being a 5th-6th grade science teacher for 17 years, I feel the whole unit should be packaged and sold to school districts nationwide.
