Review:
Meticulous research went into this tasty musical lesson in nutrition and health from multiple-Grammy Award nominees Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer, but the well-honed messages don't get in the way of the fun. The pair's assured vocals and a smashing instrumental variety sparkle with blithe clarity, and deftly crafted lyrics and catchy melodies provide sunny entertainment while serving up real information about "Breakfast Power," "Big Strong Muscles," the importance of exercise, getting enough water, healthy hygiene and eating veggies and fruits every day. Fink and Marxer throw in several "Food Jokes," too, then shift emotional gears in the final track with a resonant wish for food and care for "all the world's children." (The CD is sponsored by the non-profit Micronutrient Initiative, which promotes and supports nutrition programs across Asia, Africa and Latin America.)
