Theme:A look at the specially prepared diets of the animals at the zoo shows the importance of a nutritionally balanced diet for people,

Gregory the goat is a very picky eater, wanting only fruits, vegetables, eggs, and orange juice and refusing the usual goat diet of shoes and tin cans. His parents become very worried and eventually teach him to enjoy a variety of goat foods.

LeVar finds out that people as well as animals need a nutritionally balanced diet, when he goes to the San Diego Zoo kitchen to learn more about animal diets, visits Billy and Nanny’s Barnyard Cafe for a snack, and joins three youngsters cooking with a New York hotel chef.
