We have brought the USDA Food Pyramid, food groups, balanced meals, healthy eating and exercising to life through fun interactive, nutrition games. Each of our games work together to promote healthy living to kids while they are young and still forming their habits.
We keep nutrition concepts simple designing each game to introduce and reinforce one or two key nutrition or exercise message. Our goal is to create a positive learning experience for elementary school children so that they will want to learn about nutrition.
Below you will find the games listed by the nutrition topic they teach.
We have new games developed every year so make sure you have signed up for our free updates!
All games have been professionally translated in Spanish and available in their spanish version.
These games help children learn about the five different food groups and the foods that comprise those food groups. All our games were designed based on the USDA Food Guidelines. For children to be healthy and get all the nutrients their body needs, they need foods from each of the food groups. We use the MyPlate as part of a fun story for children that helps them learn about each of the food groups. We keep our messages positive and fun.
