A Great Treat — Cycle 65+


A Great Treat — Cycle 65+


The robots have a picnic and eat treats. Mom is eating a salad and says that the real treat is feeling great when you eat. Tiff gets a belly ache, so Mom shares her salad with the family. Tiff learns that while it is great to have treats once in awhile, it is good to balance that with food that will make you feel good after you eat it too.
