In order to play the game, students will use their computer mouse to bring the ingredients provided into the cooking device on the screen. Once they have chosen the ingredients they want for their meal, they can click the “Cook” button. The game will then show them a graphic of the meal they have made, as well as the nutritional value of the meal.
To teach the nutrition, we have focused on the importance of eating an appropriate number of foods from each food group, daily. We have linked each ingredient to a specific food group and our checklist will be updated after each meal has been made. In addition, the game will inform the user of the calories in one serving of their meal.
- Numerous ingredients for the students to experiment.
