bo nutrition 60x60 Nutrition and Healthy Eating ! Fun games to teach kids in Preschool and Kindergarten about balanced diet by i Learn With   ReviewNutrition and Healthy Eating ! Fun games to teach kids in Preschool and Kindergarten about balanced diet by i Learn With aims to promote healthy eating habits in young children, starting from learning what is healthy food, the food groups they belong to and how to create a balanced meal from the different food groups.

We spend much time teaching our kids the 3 Rs but often leave the teaching of nutrition to the schools. We make an effort to prepare healthy and balanced meals for our children but how many of us consciously talk about healthy food? On the other hand, our kids are constantly bombarded with images of unhealthy food and rewards always come in the form of sweet treats. The app market alone is flooded with games where kids get to play with ice cream, cupcakes, donuts, burgers, cookies and these are immensely popular. As boring as it may sound, we do need an app to promote nutrition and healthy eating habits.

mzl.awyxzxsv.320x480 75 Nutrition and Healthy Eating ! Fun games to teach kids in Preschool and Kindergarten about balanced diet by i Learn With   ReviewThere are 3 games in this app. In Game 1 (Feed the Bears), the player is asked to collect the appropriate food in the basket to feed the bears. Incorrect items get bounced off the basket while correct items are verbally labelled. Level 1 is about identifying edible food, level 2 separates the healthy food from those that are sugary or fatty and level 3 gets children to pick food from the same food groupings – dairy/grains/meats and proteins/vegetables and fruits.

mzl.cixuscfv.320x480 75 Nutrition and Healthy Eating ! Fun games to teach kids in Preschool and Kindergarten about balanced diet by i Learn With   ReviewIn Game 2 (Cook Magic Potions), players are asked to sort the food items into the respective food groups, starting from 2 groups in level 1 to all 4 groups in level 3. Game 3 (Prepare the Penguin’s Birthday Feast) requires the player to pick one food item belonging to each of the food groups listed on the menu for the birthday feast.

While playing the first game, my 6 year-old son asked me for the first time what is healthy food. I was taken aback but was glad to have the opportunity to talk about our food choices. With repeated play, he learnt to classify different food by their food groups effortlessly. I also like the positive message subtly conveyed by an active Bo, dressed in exercise gear and walking a lot in Game 1.

mzl.crvwegsy.320x480 75 Nutrition and Healthy Eating ! Fun games to teach kids in Preschool and Kindergarten about balanced diet by i Learn With   ReviewThis app is definitely a timely addition to the educational app store but just knowing that balanced meals are composed of several food groups is not enough. I hope that the scope of the app would extend to teach children about serving size and the recommended amount of servings for various food groups. Even unhealthy food (though not a food group) has a place on the Food Pyramid.

mzl.onrxikos.320x480 75 Nutrition and Healthy Eating ! Fun games to teach kids in Preschool and Kindergarten about balanced diet by i Learn With   ReviewAs with all other apps from i Learn With, this app allows parents to follow the child’s progress (needs an account registration and wifi enabled) and rewards the children earned from playing the games are added to Planet Boing, a free play zone that your child will sure to love.

This app is free to download giving you access to try the first game. A one-time payment will get you all the 3 games. Here’s a promotional video to give you a glimpse to the fun and colorful games.
