BAM! Food and Nutrition

BAM! Food and Nutrition gets kids, ages 9-13, up to speed on healthy eating habits. This CDC site has interactive games and quizzes based on national education standards for science and health.

The Dining Decisions online game and the Dining Decisions app for iPad/iPhone help kids understand which food are best for them. Sort foods into three categories: go, slow, and whoa. Fresh fruits and vegetables, and skim milk are examples of “go” foods that are good for you. Foods like hamburgers and pancakes are “slow” foods that kids should eat only a couple of times a week. Ice cream, potato chips, and candy are examples of “whoa” foods that should be rare treats.
