What I had created for this little boy he called his “Canada Food Guide Game” I wasn’t sure such a serious issue should be called a game and his response was “Well, it is FUN!” So a “game”it was and I used it as an acronym for Get Awesome Meals Everyday.
The name changed to The Eating Game to accomodate Copyright and the Patent Application and my innovative and actually quite simple solution would continue to help hundreds more children and families deal with helping picky eaters, obsessive eaters, those who are non verbal, those with developmental delays.
Since the launch of the original Eating Game six years ago, I have launched 4 more Eating Game products and have acquired US Patent Rights for The Eating Game Patent # 8,333,593 B2.
1) Eater’s Choice Daily Meal Planners for those who need an eating game to help them have a healthier diet but don’t need the 200+ food pictures for their visual planner. This was in response to customer request and is being used by many to eat a healthy diet. It has helped some of us lose weight or battle eating obsessions and has helped some eat more as needed.
2) The above now available as a digital download for you to print and laminate
3) The MIY Eating Game Kit – it is The Eating Game in a Make It Yourself format; I supply all the materials you need(laminated charts and pictures and velcro type fastener) to make your own Eating Game. This was in response to many folks who said they would love to have an Eating Game but could not afford it; this enabled me to cut 38% off the price of The Eating Game so that more kids could benefit.
4) the very popular Eating Game in digital download format – speedy delivery at no charge; in minutes you have all the files and instructions you need to create your own Eating Game – just add card stock, 5 mil laminating and velcro. In a few hours you will have your copy ready to use! Some families are getting the kids to help.
And now you know the rest of the story ~ that was six years ago and because The Eating Game has helped so many children and their families it has become my passion to share it with others in the hopes that it will maybe help even one more person! I have to honestly say that each day my passion is enriched as is the health of many children!
