6 Educational Games that Teach your Kids about Foods

My kids at their young age are food lovers and they are eager to know more about what goes inside their tummy. Glad to know that there are online games that can help me teach them the value of food and how to identify whether it is edible or not.

Here are the top 6 educational culinary or food games that you can play with your kids.

Bento Box

Who loves bento boxes? Yes, we all want sushi, onigiri, and tempura in our packed meals, and our kids are excited when they see bento boxes that are intricately designed. So in this game, the player needs to fill in the missing pictures with the usual Japanese foods you see in a bento box. My 4-year-old son loves this game as it reminds him of our recent Japan trip.

Watermelon Games

It is one the most popular games among kids and kids-at-heart. It is easy to play. Just like Tetris, you just have to locate where a specific fruit will drop. Just keep in mind that when two similar fruit are close to each other, they merge and become a larger fruit. The goal of the game is to achieve a watermelon which is the highest category of fruits. Honestly, this game hooks for more than an hour because it is very challenging and interesting at the same time.

Fitness Food Run

This game encourages players to consume healthy foods. Players gain weight by eating healthy food such as apples and cucumber and they become sluggish when eating fries which they need to avoid. A heath meter will guide the player if they need more health foods.

Feed the Baby

This is a simple food classification game for young children, requiring them to quickly determine if a food is primarily meat, vegetables, or dessert. My son aced this game as we always teach him about what we eat at home.

Fruit Sorting Game

It allows kids to sort fruits by type by clicking on the left or right side of the screen. For example, the player has to click left for banana and right for apple. It also teaches children about patterns and basic counting. You have to sort them as fast as you can because there is a timer at the top of the screen.

Can I eat it Game

It is suitable for little children and preschool students to quickly determine if an item is edible, involving a variety of items such as fruits, vegetables, cookies, and more. My kids love this game because it is easy to play. The player needs to choose whether it is edible or not quickly because the game is also time-bound. Personally, I like this game which is very helpful for our young ones especially when the time comes that they need to go to school and eat on their own.

Aside from food and education games, I also enjoy some games at the website Culinary Schools.org because they also offer some cooking and kitchen games. They have various games about farms, animals, and restaurants which help players appreciate where our food comes from. Over a hundred of free online games about food, culinary arts, etc can be played unlimited.

If you are into games, you may find the site helpful about healthy lifestyles for they offer some tools for weightloss, calculating our body fat, measuring our workout calories, etc.
