As soon as you open the well packaged Eating Game box, you know that great care went in preparing this meal planning tool.
My grandchildren and I had fun getting to know The Eating Game. Even the 4 yr old understood and could participate. Here is what we wish to share with you.
Good quality paper has been laminated to withstand use by many little hands who will find pleasure in helping adults in their life plan healthy meals. The laminated pages, handily organized and protected in a ring binder can be easily removed and replaced.
You will find nine laminated Daily Planning guides, one for each of the 9 categories of individuals (ages 2-3, ages 4-8, ages 9-13, females ages 14-18,… males ages 51+) Each guide follows Canada’s Food Guide by having the recommended number of food item servings per day needed for that age group and gender ( when applicable ).
Each Daily Planning guide has columns to plan three meals and three snacks eaten on one day. Everything, pictures and daily planning guides are color coded to correspond with the included Canada’s Food Guide.
Jean Nicol thought of everything to make this kit durable, efficient and fun to use. Not only would Special Need families benefit from The Eating Game; but all families who want to encourage their children to eat healthily. Furthermore it is a great way to introduce new foods, learn the names of new foods and learn to read them as they are typed under each picture.
Planning meals in advance during a stress free time, perhaps the evening before, will ensure happier meal times for all family members.
Jean has an information sheet with suggestions for getting started and also another page with suggestions for using the kit… told you Jean was very thorough when she created this wonderful resource.
