Last year I had a chance to check out an innovative new game called Eat To Win that is designed to help children develop healthy eating habits and learn about nutrition in a fun way. The board games are great for at-home fun but Eat to Win wants every child to have the knowledge they need to make healthy eating choices and that’s why the company also created a handy classroom edition version of the game perfect for helping kids from Preschool to Grade 5 learn about nutrition and exercise!
Eat to Win Classroom Edition is a set of flash cards in four different categories: Eat It, Quiz It, Know It and Do It. An activity book included with the cards contains an assortment of group games that can be played with the set. And, best of all, the Quiz It cards are actually left blank so that teachers can write their own questions on the cards to help prepare children for upcoming tests or add important content of their own.
My boys loved playing with these cards and they especially enjoyed the Eat It cards, which contained questions about different types of food, and the Do It cards, which contained fun activities for children to do right at that minute. From singing while rowing an imaginary boat to standing and sitting five times as fast as possible, the actions had my boys hopping and laughing every time. And the cards can also be used with the original Eat to Win board game so that younger or older children can still be challenged! [Read more…]
