Healthy Heroes Kids Nutrition

Eating healthy is always a challenge, even for grown-ups! Queen Ignorantia has meddled in the Yogome world once more by sending her robotic henchmen to steal away the good stuff, leaving the healthy monsters feeling sick and out of sorts. Join Oof and Oona as they journey through a prehistoric landscape to find the five food groups and restore the nutritional balance. While we all learn about the five basic food groups in grade school, public education does little to really reinforce that learning. School lunches are rarely as healthy as they should be, while junk food is available just about everywhere. Healthy Heroes 2 seeks to teach kids the basics of holistic eating by combining a compulsively playable “matching game” puzzle mechanic with a story that seamlessly ties together the five food groups (i.e., fruits, vegetables, cereals, proteins, and dairy) and rewards learning. There are plenty of different morsels to find for each food group in the pyramid - over 30 healthy foods in all! Healthy Heroes 2 teaches kids about balanced meals using the USDA’s ChooseMyPlate.gov model. Players are encouraged to explore the site and learn more about nutrition as they play the game, and parents are encouraged to participate in the process by offering healthier eating options at home.
