Why a game on balanced meals?

Because it is important to have a healthy diet and we need to start learning how to eat at an early age.

The main purpose of this game is to promote positive health and nutrition behaviour and regular exercise, and explain to children the basic principles of a healthy diet.

There is currently a particular interest in nutrition and a significant increase in the number of shows, games, articles, magazines and books on the subject of cooking in general (press, television, radio, web…), but the media are also talking about the other side of the coin : health problems, overweight and increasing obesity among children.

Le p’tit toqué is a family game. Children and their parents will discover that they can have fun with a subject as serious as nutrition!

Eat healthily, cook yourself, enjoy life… No food is off-limits, quite the opposite - with a good lifestyle and a regular exercise, you can eat anything you want… in reasonable quantities.

 

From 7 years old

At this age, the children learn to read, choose their food themselves at the canteen, can distinguish between different food categories and need to exercise a lot. The game can also be used in kindergartens, in order to work on the vocabulary, food categories or as a memory game.

 

      

3 objectives: education, play and practical application

By playing, the children memorise the different food categories, learn to choose the right utensils and can cook a meal with the recipes included in the box.
