Food and Nutrition

This part of the toolkit includes games that teach children about the nutritious properties of foods and encourages them to adopt healthy eating habits. For example, the Guess Who game involves guessing the food item on the picture card using hints from the clue cards. In the process of playing the game, children learn about the benefits of various foods. Such games aid association and recall, implementation and help in better decision-making. In addition, the My Balanced Meal game teaches children about how they can combine various foods to create a balanced diet. This is combined with efforts to encourage their consumption such as by sharing local recipes and home remedies.
