Making nutritional eating fun is half the battle when you're working to get kids to understand nutrition and change their habits. Many have now seen the MyPlate icon in classrooms, but can they work with it? Learning ZoneXpress has created a game that helps kids make the connection to food, nutrition and a healthy lifestyle: 1 Great Plate® Game. This educational game helps students create a healthy plate and make it great with food choices from all five food groups. The 1 Great Plate® Game makes finding and building MyPlate meal combinations fun! Players are challenged to construct a healthy, nutritionally balanced plate with a fruit, vegetable, grain, protein, and dairy using food portion cards.
Games are geared for students of all ages - elementary, middle and high school. The nutritional games would work well in Family and Consumer Science (FACS), Life Skills, Health and Culinary classrooms as well as in cafeterias or even in restaurants as placemats that occupy kids while teaching them about nutrition. What a nice complement to offering healthy food choices for kids.
