Sesame Street Happy Healthy Monsters Nutritiion Review

 

Top Pick. Fitness and nutrition are the focus of this creative and effective Sesame Street video and DVD. Happy Healthy Monsters is part of Sesame Workshop's "Healthy Habits for Life" campaign. Seven new Sesame Street songs are featured, two of which are brand new while the other five are new renditions of old favorites. 

 

 

Grover hosts the exercise show, "Fuzzy, Blue and Healthy, Too", as Elmo, Zoe, and friends follow along. Grover is as silly as ever, expecting a cow to jump, calling a kangaroo a pouch-aroo, and so on. After all of that jumping and moving about, Grover has worked up an appetite. Cookie Monster, of all monsters, demonstrates the importance of a balanced diet—he's the healthy food specialist. He doesn't just eat cookies all day long! 

 

Celebrity guests include Andy Richter, Fred Willard, Wyclef Jean, India.Arie, and Dan Zanes. Wonderful health-themed Sesame Street vignettes are found throughout, including vignettes about fruits, milk, and "couch potatoes". Grover even does a yoga-like workout in which he tells viewers that they are exercising their brains and stretching their imaginations.

 

The DVD edition includes several bonus features, including a Chef Cookie game and bonus Sesame Street shorts. For a limited time, the DVD comes with a Sesame Street growth chart with a push-button special message from Elmo.

 

We love the "Healthy Habits for Life" initiative—kids trust Sesame Street characters, and their promotion of exercise and healthy foods will certainly have an impact on little viewers. This video/DVD promotes a positive attitude about keeping healthy.
