Red Light, Green Light

This game will help raise your kids food IQ.
children will learn the difference between the foods that make your body go slow and the foods that make your body grow! Me and my wonderful intern Sophie Malamut designed this game and had such a wonderful time testing it on kids this summer.

Green light foods are found in nature and do not come in a package! You should try and eat these foods every day, because they nourish your body, making you healthy and strong.  These foods appear on your plate how they look in nature. You should be able to pick these foods from a garden or find them at a farmers market, ready to eat.

Yellow light foods are foods that are okay to eat sometimes. They don’t nourish you but aren’t extremely harmful toward your body either. These foods are usual found in packages but are not as bad as candy, soda, and fast food.

Red light foods mean STOP! These foods are loaded with fake ingredients and chemicals that are not good for your body. Red light foods are made in a lab from many ingredients and include “fast food” and candy.  You can’t find these foods in a garden. They are packaged in containers covered in words that you don’t recognize. If you can’t say it, don’t eat it!
