    Based off the children’s book, Good for You: Adventures with Ginger and George, written by Lynne Mulligan, Programs Manager at Creative Discovery Museum and illustrated by David Young, a former Art Professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, the exhibit tells the story of Ginger and her friends in the Good for You Crew. Ginger is a potato chip eating, soda guzzling couch potato who loves to watch T.V. When her mother orders her out of the house, she and her faithful dog George begin an adventure that leads to a world of healthy foods and active play.

    In the exhibit, visitors learn about healthy lifestyles and healthy foods. They can listen to their heart beat and participate in hands-on activities that teach the importance of balancing good food choices (energy in) with physical activities (energy out). An interactive video wall lets guests create a balanced meal as they use their whole bodies to capture floating images of foods. Visitors also learn about healthy food choices as they pick authentic looking fruits and vegetables in Sam’s Garden and sell them at Maria’s Farmer’s Market.
