Obesity in children has more than tripled in the past 30 years, according to the CDC, and Eat to Win is fighting back with what children do best – playing games. As a maker of activity games promoting nutrition and exercise, Eat to Win is introducing their new interactive board game where kids will have so much fun completing challenges and trivia, they won’t even realize they’re learning.
“An unhealthy lifestyle is a common problem when it comes to obesity in children,” says creator of Eat to Win, Jammi Roscoe. “Eat to Win utilizes the natural curiosity of children with an extra layer of physical activity to instill healthy habits for adulthood.”
Players will enjoy traveling through 4 fun parks earning extra bucks along the way. Every food space is equal to the average number of calories for the food item shown, and kids must take care not to land in the Banana Split Pit or Chocolate Lava Fountain where it will cost them. When a player lands on one of the Do It spaces, they never know what silly dance or activity they may end up doing!
The game includes:
- 40 Do It Activity Cards
- 40 Eat It Trivia Cards
- 20 Challenge Cards
- 6 Mover Pieces
- Game Board
- Player Guide
- 30 Food Tokens
- Fun Money
- Custom Tray
- 1 Die
Inspired by Jammi’s son, Eat to Win games was created when her son was forced to wear a large X on his football uniform indicating that his play was to be limited because he was overweight. Jammi then challenged her son by combining practical real-world skills to calorie counting to create a fun dynamic that a child would be able to stick with.
“This personal experiment grew into a passion of teaching children about nutrition in a fun, engaging way,” says Jammi. “After all, what child doesn’t want money – even if it is fake.”
Eat to Win games are in agreement with the Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, an organization of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that looks to improve the nutrition and well-being of Americans.
